 SQL 7.0 Backup and Backup Exec
Can someone help?  I use Backup Exec for my backups and I want to use the MS
SQL Server Backup 7.0 tool to backup my databases.  My instructor in SQL
Server 7.0 Admin told me that I can append my SQL Server backup onto my
existing Backup Exec tapes.  However, SQL Server is saying the tape formats
are wrong.

Anyone have any ideas?

 SQL 7.0 Backup and Backup Exec

When I tried to use SQL Server backup on a tape that had been used by Backup
Exec I had all kinds of problems. The only way I as able to use SQL Server
Backup was to format the tape with SQL Server. This of course will erase
anything that was previously on the tape.

Vicki,

Can NTBACKUP.EXE read the tape?
If not, backupexec uses some other format than MTF (Microsoft Tape Format).
SS uses MTF. If backup exec does, that should work.
