Solution

Complete these steps in order to resolve the issue:

  1. Stop the CRS Node Manager from Windows services.

  2. Go to Start > Programs > Micorsoft SQL server > Query Analyzer.

  3. In the Connect to SQL Server dialog box, enter these settings:

    • In the SQL Server field, enter the name of the Cisco CRS server, Servername\CRSSQL.

    • Under Connect Using, choose Windows Authentication.

  4. Click OK.

    The SQL query analyzer window opens. In the top middle of the screen, you have the option to select different databases, such as db_cra, db_reporitory, FCRasSvr.

  5. Check if the craDistribution database exists. (The craDistribution database is not likely to exist).

  6. Execute this query in the SQL query analyzer window:

    use db_cra;
    
    exec craAddLocalDistributor '1'
    
    GO
    
    use db_cra_repository;
    
    exec craAddLocalDistributor '1'
    
    GO
    
    use FCRasSvr;
    
    exec craAddLocalDistributor '1'
    
    GO

    Note: It takes few minutes for the craDistribution database to be created.

  7. Refresh the databases in Enterprise Manager on the CRS SQL server.

  8. From Serviceability, enable these services:

    • Cisco Desktop LDAP Monitor Service

    • Cisco Desktop Sync Service

  9. Once you see the craDistribution database, restart the CRS Node Manager from Windows services.

After you complete these steps, you should be able to proceed with the back up.

Known issues

Problem

UCCX backup fails with this error message: Update failed : Unable to access SFTP server or SFTP server too slow to respond. Please make sure the login credentials and path are correct.

Solution

This issue occurs when the path defined for back up is anything else other than a backslash ( \ ), which is the root directory in most cases. Ensure that you enter the path for backup as \.
