NTBackUp Scheduled Task

Last Modified: 2012-05-05
Hi Experts,

As part of the backup plan, there is a scheduled task to run NTBackUp on our Exchange Server.  It runs fine if started manually from the scheduled tasks interface and returns a nice 0x0 result.

However, every time the scheduler tries to run the job, it fails and returns a 0x1f.  This was configured before my time, and I don't want to go poking around blindly.  The command line that runs is included below (seems awfully big to me).

Do you see any reason why this would fail on the scheduler but work manually?

C:\WINNT\system32\ntbackup.exe backup "@C:\Documents and Settings\eei_admin_user.EEI\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows NT\NTBackup\data\Dail Exchange Backup.bks" /n "ExchangeDaily.bkf created 3/31/2008 at 3:37 PM" /d "Set created 3/31/2008 at 3:37 PM" /v:no /r:no /rs:no /hc:off /m normal /j "Dail Exchange Backup" /l:s /f "B:\Server Backups\Exchserver\ExchangeDaily.bkf"
