I am running sharepoint foundations 2010 and I'm getting some backup errors.
I'm backing up to my SAN.
"access is denied" error
Object SharePoint_Config_7527afa0-4143-46ce-b0a6-e4a32d59651d 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 '\\vms01\sharepointbackups\spbr0001\0000003E.bak'. Operating system error 5(Access is denied.).
BACKUP DATABASE is terminating abnormally.

All 5 errors are giving me this access is denied error message.  
I dont' really want to use a domain account, so I'm not sure exactly what permissions I need to give my sharepoint domain account?

Check the SP timer service (account) has permissions to write to the file system.

I tried finding it by server\sptimerserice or server\sptimer and nothing comes up.

good article, but that only works if you're backing up locally on the same drive.

Which is the recommendation from MS - backup locally and move to a network storage location

I see.  So then maybe I'll just do that, I'll schedule the backup and then use a program like synchback and schedule that to move it over to the SAN.

Thanks, Dan
