network browsing

We have 3 windows 2003 servers (sA-sC) with Sql Backup set up in the same workgroup. sA and sB are on different IP networks (n1-n2) and the networks have access to each other. sC is on the same net (n1) with sA. I connect to the servers using sqb gui from a remote network.

All servers can access their network shares in windows explorer. File browsing is enabled on Sql Backups. On sC, sql backup agent and sql server are set to use the administrator account, which shares the same password with sA.

On sC file dialogs, I can't browse any network locations, when I add a server name or IP to the dialog, it looks empty, and I can only delete it. I can type in the path for a sA file (\\sA\backup\backup.sqb) to access it.

I also can't browse the network shares from the Sql Backups on other servers, sA and sB.

Is a domain needed for network browsing?


  • Hi,

    Thank you for your forum post.

    I believe you are experiencing a bug in SQL Backup with Windows 2000 and 2003 servers using SQL Authentication.

    We have a private build which should resolve the issue.

    Please can you e-mail [email protected] quoting reference F0012995.
