DBMaintenance Utility will not run

DBMaintenance Utility will not run

DBMaintenance Utility will not run

Has anyone seen the following errors when trying to run the dbmaintenance utility?

When I try to run the DBMaintenance utility without connection parameters I get "No connection parameter supplied, Trying to fetch from Registry-Failed to open connection to database"  When I try using the connection parameters with Server, database account and password I get "Failed to open connection to database" error. When you look into the DBMaintenanceTool.Log the error is listed as [CDBMaintenance::OpenSQLConnection] CoCreateInstance()failed.

Thank you in advance.

Are you tried to open by Management Studio SQL?

No, the DBMaintenance Utility that I was trying to run was the utility that comes on the CommVault CD.  

RE: DBMaintenance Utility will not run

Problem was resolved after the following patches were applied on the CommVault server. Not sure exactly which one resolved problem.
