Central Administration backup fails.

Hi!

I am about to set up a new SP 2010 server on W2008 r2 (sp2). I am about to move my sp1 to the new sp2. Before i move it i just wanted to try out the backup in central administration, but it fails when it comes to my database.

Object SharePoint_Config_f2 failed in event OnBackup. For more information, see the spbackup.log or sprestore.log file located in the backup directory.
SqlException: Cannot open backup device 'C:\Backup\spbr0000\0000009A.bak'. Operating system error 3(failed to retrieve text for this error. Reason: 15105).
BACKUP DATABASE is terminating abnormally.

I tried to set everyone full rights to he backup folder just to try it out and it seems to be exactly the same config on my other sp1 server but no luck. Any ideas?

i haven't tried tried  powershell backup yet i just want the web backup to work because it works fine on my sp1 :)


Thanks!

I did just move it with poweshell, it worked very good. But it would still be nice to find out why the web backup wont work.

did you check those logs?

"see the spbackup.log or sprestore.log file located in the backup directory. "

Yeah i did, it only showed that it was the database backup that failed. But i found the problem, my misstake. My Backup folder was set to c:\backup. It had to be a shared folder ofc, for the sql server to get permission to write. now its on \\sp-2\backup. Rookie misstake :)

Thanks!
