Event ID 208, Source SQLSERVERAGENT

Good morning all,

I am getting the following error reported on one of the SQL servers, I have reported this problem to the SQL DBA but he is blaming it on the backup software.  I can't see this myself and as I don't have any SQL expiriance except installing could someone shed some like on this so I get my DBA to fix the problem.

These errors started last week when I deleted an user account of someone who left the company quite a while ago.

Thanks for your help.

It sounds like the scheduled jobs are set to run as the user you deleted. Since the user no longer exists the job don't have permission to execute.

The DBA should check under which credentials the jobs are running and update to the credentials (user) you wish to use instead.
