Ntbackup's catalog file not found!
Posted on 2003-03-27
Thank you in advance for your time and suggestion.
I am trying to take a "Normal" backup of a particular directory onto a mapped Network drive. The backup is scheduled to run every week at a particular time. The job schedule was added by me through "Terminal Service" as the Server is located elsewhere.
Everything seems to be going on fine as I see the job executing at the right time. But the problem is that on the destination location where the file is supposed to be stored, I see nothing! Neither can I find the file anywhere. Althought when the local path is specified, it works fine, it's only with the mapped Network path that the problem arises.
The same experiment works fine when I do it on my local Lan here by taking a backup of a test directory onto a mapped Network drive. Could anybody tell me why the same is not happening there? Please note that the system holding the destination drive where the .bkf file is scheduled to store is on the same LAN there, as the host having the source file.
Is the point that I am doing the scheduling through "Terminal Service" there and doing it on the console here making a difference? Also please note that I am using the "Administrator" account for scheduling and execution of the job which has full permission on all shared drives on the LAN there.
Thank you all once again
