Backup using ntbackup on SBS 2003 server failing with same problem constantly.
The bakup is scheduled to run at 930am and generally fails every night. When it fails, if I log into the server, go to removable storage and media, I need to right click the media thats inserted and deallocate it and then add to free media pool. If I run the backup again using the server management - backup section and click start backup now, the backup will start, mount the media and work no problems!
Any one have any clues how to get around this. Surely its something simple.
Attached is backup log of most recent failiure if that should help.
