I have Microsoft Office SharePoint 2007 installed in our office. Recently I have deployed Symantec Backup Exec 11d with Microsoft SharePoint agent option. I have configured the backup job and got the error “A Sharepoint farm with a Shared Service Provider name containing a space will cause backup failure with meta data errors” the Symantec reference document is available at http://seer.entsupport.symantec.com/docs/297111.htm I haven’t found any solution related to this problem, how we can solve this issue with having any kind of trouble. Our SharePoint server is critical one and don’t want to do any kind of experiment on it at the same time backup is critical as well. Please help me out. Thanks

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

So not knowing the full story here, I would suggest two things.
1.Create a staging environment for your current installation. This will allow you to do the experimental things that you want to do without creating any catastrophes on your production environment.
2.To remedy the backup issue you are having I would rename the SSP that you have for the site as apparently Symantec has not been able to figure out how to deal with a space in the name of the SSP(Share Service Provider) you can do this by going to the SSP manager page and editing the properties.
