unable to view databases while creating protection group for a SQL server RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I am trying to create a protection group to take back up of SQL servers databases in server ACRDEFRDB05. But the strange thing is I cannot see All SQL Server in the list. However we have another server DB06 where I can see the databases available.

    SO checked few blogs and found that VSS SQL Writer Service should be running on the server. Service is running on the server but when I check the output of list writers in VSS Admin console its missing there.

    Checked on the NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM account and it is having Sysadmin privilege on the databases. Also checked for the databases name if any of them has a white space in its name and could not find any.

    Can someone please suggest if there is any other way to troubleshoot this issue. Any help would be much appreciated.
