I need some help here to deal with backup of WSUS 3.0 database. Is anyone has managed to do the same. I want some help to backup WSUS 3.0 database. I am not able to do the same. I am trying to use Veritas. I think there will be some option available that can really help out. I tried to run the backup but got a error on the same. There was related to some kind of backup job. The complete error detail is : "An error was encountered while attempting to browse the contents of WSUSSERVER\MICROSOFT##SSEE. Microsoft SQL Server does not appear to be running or network connections are preventing access to it." I went into Event Viewer and found a error related to that. It shows failure audit. What does that means.
