I am trying to configure MS SQl Db backup.
The server is added to client list.
Now when I go to DP>Backup>Backup specifications>MSSQL Server and configure the backup.
I give the client name and when I try to give application database name/instance name the DP would hung and it will not automatically popup with the appplication database name like it should be.
So i am not sure if I have missed something. Please help !

I have seen a problem occur when trying to configure Exchange backups mostly, a few with SQL, although in those cases, the problem was when the server was chosen, an Application Data base was not shown
On the SQL server, find the path to the SQL executables folder. Then, at the MS-DOS prompt on the SQL server, type the command:
to see if the path to the SQL executables is included. If not, add the path to the Windows environment variables on the SQL server
You didn't specify what version of Data Protector you are using, so I can't give you a page reference in the Integration Guide, but, here is what is says about this issue with Exchange
Add the 'Exchange_home\bin' directory to the Windows Path environment variable:
1. In the Windows Explorer, right-click
My Computer and click Properties.
2. In the Properties dialog box, click Advanced and then Environment Variables.
Path in the System Variables list and click Edit.
in the Variable Value text box and click OK.
If the integration is cluster-aware, perform this procedure on all cluster nodes.
So, instead of Exchange_home, make is SQL_Home

"In third step you have mentioend select Path. you mean Omniback/bin Path ? or some other?"
The path is that of the SQL_Home\bin directory
"Is there any license issue ?"
You will need an on-line extension license for windows (B6965), but, that is not affecting the problem that you are having
