SQL 2012 Mirroring Backing up Transaction Logs

Hi Experts,

Have mirroring setup on 2 SQL 2012 Standard servers which is working fine. I am using Olla Hallengren's Maintenance Solution (https://ola.hallengren.com/sql-server-backup.html) to do the SQL backups of the principal server/database which is working fine.  However when I schedule the transaction log backup it completes successfully but does not backup to the network location. We are not doing differential backups. I have attached the results of the transaction log backup:

Date            11/10/2014 4:45:00 PM

Why you use this notation:  '\\domain\sqlbackup$\' ?

I don't think you need the $. That is for a driver name not for a folder name. You should use a unc path like:

\\server_name\share\path

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

try  without last '\'

@Directory = '\\domain\sqlbackup$'

Here is from Olla Halegren website about directory parameter in the backup procedure:

C:\Backup      Back up to the directory C:\Backup.
C:\Backup, D:\Backup      Back up to the directories C:\Backup and D:\Backup.
\\Server1\Backup      Back up to the network share \\Server1\Backup.
\\Server1\Backup, \\Server2\Backup      Back up to the network shares \\Server1\Backup and \\Server2\Backup.
