Log shipping error

Log shipping monitor is showing wrong information, though all the jobs are getting completed successfully. It shows otherwise, I know this info is coming from log_shipping_primaries and log_shipping_secondaries tables. These tables are updated with server names but backup fields (last_update,last_backup_file) are not updated.

Yes, SELECT and UPDATE privileges have been set up to public.

It is SQL 2000 SP4 both primary & Secondary(this itself is monitoring server) servers.

I see error, Error: 14420, Severity: 16, State: 1 in log file.

Thanks,
Prabhu

Theres an outside chance that Emanager is displaying the job status wrong. Try shutting it down and restarting it. Then check the View job history. Then we can see if these are definitely working and take it from there....

I did it already, same result. I remember there is fix to alter a proc or .dll. I don't remember exactly and I don't have that link with me anymore.

I have fixed this problem.

I had to create log_shipping_monitor_probe account manually, give access to msdb and use it. When I selected SQL authentication y'day to use this account, it created an account in msdb but no login account was created. This looks absurd.

So, before setting up log shipping, we need to create this account manually and then set  up log shipping.
