Since upgrading to client 2.1.15 and server 2.1.19 I’ve had one desktop client that stopped backing up successfully (full or incremental). The logs show the error “Windows backup component config XML is empty”. If I change “Windows components backup configuration” in the server settings to “default=0” then the backup completes.
I know this one machine does have an sqlexpress instance that was installed as part of another software package. I don’t care if the database gets backed up or not as it doesn’t contain anything I care about so I am content leaving “default=0”. I manage all my settings from the server, so I haven’t even touched the client.
Is this a bug or a configuration error?
