Hi everyone,

I need to schedule a SQL 2005 backup. I need it to backup 3 times daily to a shared directory on another server. I have created the three folders a 12pm 3pm and 7pm. I need the full SQL backups to run at the respective times. I have verified that I can run a backup to the shared folders. I am not familiar with SQL at all nor am I familiar with any of the query’s or commands. Can some one help me out with setting this up? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

The backup failed, it said that it could not find the path but I know it is correct. I think maybe because the SQL Agent is logged on as the local system account in the windows services. I changed it to log in as the domain administrator. Remember I am not backing up to the local drive, do you think that this is the problem?

It could be that you might not have permissions in that folder??  I'll add a link to this question, maybe other experts can help out too.

local system accounts have no access to network resources.  You will have to restart the agent for the new domain account to take effect

I did change the service to the domain admin and restarted the service. I see the problem I specified a UNC path to a server on the network, but SQL is trying tacking on the default backup local server path to my specified path. How do I stop it from doing this?

I meant to say is the backup plan is tacking on a local path before my specified path for example when I look at the error logs it tell me it cant find specified path D:\Program Files\MSSQL\Backup\Datbase.bak\\remote servername\sharename\12pm.bak

Do you have this set up as a job or a maintenance plan?

You have to go edit the plan, which is not as easy as it was with 2000.  Sadly, I am not in front of my 2005 install today.

Please open a new question in the SQL 2005 Zone titled "How do I edit a maintenance plan" if you can't find where to edit it.
