HI
I am trying to back up two Exchage Servers, both of them in the same organization, domain and LAN.
The tape is in Server 1, Server 2 have no tapes.
The Back up is Full, circular logging is enabled.
If I use the Back Up Windows Utility there is no problems...but when I perfom back up with a .bat file the Exchage`s Service of Server 2 returns a "Deny Acces" in Log Events and of course backups nothing.

Any ideas??
Thanksss

Perhaps your batch file is running without permission to back up the second Exchange server.

If the batch file runs unattended (while you are not logged on) it has to run in the system context of the local machine. This will give it administrative privs on the machine on which it runs (the local machine) but it will have no privs on any other machine.

I don't think the Windows backup utility can back up any server but itself.

HI
The backup utility CAN backup the Exchange in Server 2, trust me :)
The Batch file..yes  it runs unattended...I launch it from a WorkStation with Winat so It does not run in local context in any servers, and I only have problems with the Server 2....

Thankss!!!

check the schedule service is not started logging on as system account. (try with administrator account)

You need to change the schedule service on the machine which is running the at command

go to control panel/services

highlight schedule service

click startup

click radio button for using this account

select account from domain and add appropriate password

if all is okay you should receive a message saying user <username> has been granted log on as a service right.
Stop the service and restart.

See how you go.

Hi!! The points are for you!!
Just only one thing. I had to uninstall the IE5 from the server in wich run the schedule service. This is because teh IE5 replace the schedule service wiht another one named "Task Schedule" and...surprise you can not change the account in this one.
THANKSS TO ALL!!
