NTBackup not backing "some" mapped drives
Posted on 2011-03-21
I have a weird problems with my NTBackup. We are still using W2K3 servers, no W2K8.
Here is the issue :- We have a few W2K3 servers and on 3 of them we have configure tape backups. All been working fine until we changed the Administrator password recently, some of the backup failed.
The failure is a bit weird. I HAVE gone through all the backup schedules to enter the new password. I have remapped all the necessary network drives using the right credentials. 2 of the backup servers work fine, the problem is only on the third one (BKServer3).
On that server we backup data on C:\ drive, Microsoft Exchange store and a couple of mapped drives. What happen was, c:\ drive and MS store had been backup but not the mapped drives. I can see the mapped drive and access them without issue. REmapping hasn't resolved the problem. There is NO error in event or backup log. What really strange is that this only occurs a couple of times a week - i.e. the backup successfully complete most of the time but failed occassinoally.
So is there anything I can look at? I am a bit stuck in this.
Thanks in advance for any help.
