NTBackup: Not running if not logged on..
Posted on 2004-10-24
Hi, Folks. I've a client machine that running SBS2003 (Windows 2003 server).
I've got a scheduled backup job that runs from a scheduled task - using a service account.
If I don't have anyone logged into the server (either at the physical console -- or via RDP) the backup does not run.
If I have a second account (not the service account) logged on when the backup starts, the job runs just fine.
I can't find anything in the logs, nor can I find anything to indicate why the job failed. (Maybe there's something other than the eventviewer to look at..?)
The eventviewer does show the service account being unable to "unload your classes registry file" - then correctly unloading it ~60 seconds later.. 30 minutes after the scheduled job begins.
So, I think the backup job is sitting around - twiddling its thumbs, waiting for something to happen -- which dosen't happen, and it quits.. RSM?
