We are running windows small business server 2008 but when it comes back every day with its status report it is reporting the backup as not configured. is there a way to tell windows that we are using our own backup software like you tell windows you are managing the firewall/antivirus.

This should stop the warning message.


Run the SBS Backup wizard, and elect to 'not use SBS Backup'. From the Welcome screen, next > What you see next I think depends on whether you've run the backup wizard before, or not. Here's what I see (as I've run the wizard previously). Modify Backup Settings - there is a "change existing backup settings" or a "do not use SBS backup" radio button.
