    Could you please try restarting the SQL Backup Agent service? Thanks.

    I am getting that error when trying to attach to one server via the SQL Backup 5 GUI, I am also getting that error when I run the following code in SMS

    EXEC master..sqlbackup '-sql "BACKUP DATABASE model TO DISK = [I:\model.sqb] WITH INIT"'

    When I run

    C:\Program Files\Red Gate\SQL Backup\(LOCAL)SQLBackupC.exe -SQL "BACKUP DATABASE model TO DISK = [I:\model.sqb] WITH INIT"

    I recieve a VDI error 1010: Failed to get the configuration from the server because the timeout interval has elapsed.

    I've stopped and started BackupAgent and SQLAgent. I cannot stop and restart the entire server until later tonight.

    SQL 2000 Enterprise SP4

    The only change that I can think of is that we are now using Local System account to start the services rather than .\Administrator

    Restarting all services seems to have cleared it up
