Re: sql backup in networker 9.0.0.2 can not be started

The error message is strange but I think the issue is clear now - with NMM 9 manual backups are not allowed/possible any longer. From the Release Notes:

Unsupported NetWorker features

    The following NetWorker features are not supported in NMM:

     - Localization (L10N)

     - Probe based backups

   - Adhoc or manual VSS backups

    - AES encryption for Hyper-V Server and Exchange Server backups

This is weird , if it is not supported why some body would give that option in GUI.

Because it is just cheaper to add an error message rather than to redevelop the whole program 😞

You are using VSS and not VDI?

No, if you have installed NMM then VDI support is there.

You cannot run manual backups from the GUI. However, the recover part works from there.

bingo; is this true also for VDI?  Because list you gave explicitly says VSS which is not the same as VDI.  Further, since NMM can integrate with SQL Mgmt Studio, one can run backup and restore from there so I would be surprised that you can't do the same (for VDI) from SQL user.

EMC555 the screenshot you showed does not show VDI being used so backup you did is not SQL one related (it was file system backup).
