Hi All,

We are taking Full & Diff backups through SQL Agent (Jobs are scheduled).

All servers backups are running fine. But the Full & Diff backup jobs are failing for 2 servers (SERVER_INST01, SERVER_INST02).

We are not able to find root cause of the issue. Please guide/share suggestions on our backup issue.

Please find the attached diff backup TSQL script & error details given below.

Executing the query "BACKUP DATABASE [ReportServerInt] TO  DISK = N'\\\\XYZ.DOMAIN.COM\\MYCOMP\\PROD\\SERVER_INST01\\Diffrential\\ReportServerInt\\ReportServerInt_backup_201301071900.bak' WITH  DIFFERENTIAL , NOFORMAT, NOINIT,  NAME = N'ReportServerInt_backup_20130107190048', SKIP, REWIND, NOUNLOAD,  STATS = 10

your  XYZ server maybe is too busy - check there memory \cpu (you may need more) , nic you may need faster and you may need firmware upgrade there -- . maybe fasted disks ; check RAID config there. etc.. maybe change backup times  - too free the XYZ server resources a bit

I would recommend  to find alternative destination for backup until you take care XYZ server..

Please make sure path is available and It should be no longer than 255 characters.

Note: Write permission should be there for SQL Agent user on Folder.
