hi

i have some problems with my msde 2000
i notice that my server is quite buzy
and only when i disable the bkupexec instance, the cpu relax

i inteand to update msde 2000 sp3a to sp4
it is recommended?
since as far as i know, backup exec should work fine with sp3.

is there any thing to check of this instance before updating?

thanks

the instance you are backing up is for backup exec - an enterprise backup solution - yet you aren't even backing up the database that it uses. that is irony my friend. It would be even more ironic if you had a problem and could not recover the backup exec database. You should probably try to avoid that level of irony

so, my suggestion is to make sure you have regular backups of the database scheduled and that they actually work (you have tested a recovery). then, try installing the service pack to MSDE.

hi
eyechart

- yet you aren't even backing up the database that it uses.
well u see, when i check the bkupexec instance
open it with 2005 express - choose task - backup
i see that the path to the backup file
and browse to this folder i saw the bak file
of the be database and that is up to date modified

so i guess the backup exec do its on scheduled backup?
i event delete the mdf and ldf of be and restore the db.

so i guess the backup exec do its on scheduled backup?

thanks

That means the db used by backup exec is bacped up, doesn't mean backup exec itself works.
