  • Backup (NTBackup.exe) stops during the backup process

    We are running NtBackup on our Win2k3 Domain. We have a file for our daily backups called daily.bks, which has all the backup locations listed.

    Some days it works fine, and other days it gives us an error code of
    Event ID: 8017
    Source: Ntbackup
    Ntbackup error: The saved selection file "(path\FileName.bks)" cannot be found.

    We are not running shadow copies.

    We have tried drives mapped to the backup locations based on UNC and IP address
    example - \\server1\d$\backmeup or \\192.168.1.5\d$\backmeup

    the location of our bks file is c:\bks files

    any assistance or tips would be great.

    On another note. Is there a way to have some type of message sent to an email address with the backup job status?

      I did see that. I was hoping someone had the hotfix to save me the time calling MS.

      thanks

        Maybe SP1 will fix your problem. Have you tried that?

          Well, that was another question. Is this a fix in SP1. it says it should be in the next SP, but who knows....I dont have SP1 on any machines yet and the backup machine is a DC with a DLT tape drive in it.

          whats the easiest way to find out if it is part of SP1
