I am trying to take a backup of the database but the OMS prompts me
VT-2018 error. The reason of unwillingness of the OMS to take the
backup is that it wont start without discovering the nodes
automatically with the wizard. To discover the nodes automatically, an
intelligent agent should be run on the node.

I have a problem with the starting of the intelligent agent.

I tried to start the agent with
C:\agentctl start
it returned me that the service can not be started.
I tried to run the batch file dbsnmpwd.bat - (that was a recommendation
from another forum history.)
nothing as a message appeared. The service again not started.

I tried to start the service from the service tool on Windows 2K. It
appears that the agent service is not dependent to any other service.

Well, taking a backup is impossible, I guess, without an intelligent
agent running on the node.

Is there a way to take a backup without an intelligent agent running?
What may be the problem that I can not start the intelligent agent? Do
I need a re-installation or is there a way to get it run?

Thanks for your future advice :)
