I get error on maitanance plan failure:
"Msg 22029, Sev 16: sqlmaint.exe failed. [SQLSTATE 42000]" - nothing more.
it runs for 1 second.

1) it only does full backup
2) it fails whenever i run the job
3) creating new maitanance plan  - fails as well
4) restart to Agent does not help
5) all services running under domain user with all admin priveleges.
6) job runs under same user
7) restart to sql server service - solves the problem BUT it's production server so i don't want to do it
8) it happens twice for the last week on 1 server and once on another one.
9) nothing found in events-viewer on the servers (nor on sql log files).

any suggestion ?
