Unable to Connect to SQL Server while using sqlservr -c
We routinely 'clone' servers by restoring the master and other databases' backups from one server to a new server that needs the same database structure. After restoring the master database with SQL Backup versions 3.2 and 4.6, I would start SQL Server in console mode (sqlservr -c) open SQLBackup and restore the suspect databases with the backups from the source server. Recently, we installed SQL Backup 5.1 on a server and now need to create a clone of it. Problem is I am unable to connect to the server while it is in console mode. The error I receive is 'Error opening mutex.' What does this mean?
The server is running Windows Server 2003 Enterprise x64 Edition in conjuction with SQL Server 2000 Enterprise x64 8.0.2039 and SQL Backup 126.96.36.19981.
