    Connection with server failed. Hit <F5> to retry. - Backup Exec

    I have installed Backup Exec 12 on Server 2008. When i try to make the selections to backup i get this "message Connection with server failed. Hit <F5> to retry."

    Other forums suggest the problem could be that the service account is a member of Remote Operators or Power Users but it isn't.

    Can anyone help please?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the prompt response but i tried something simple and it seemed to work.

    I logged on to the machine that had Backup Exec installed using the actual service account itself.

    Opened up Backup Exec and there you go able to create a selection list.

    Running a backup as we speak ....
