  • NTBackup is Killing me....

    Hi,
    I have posted about this problem before, but now I have updated information and questions.
    To start, I was seeing Event ID 8017, couldnít find the .bks file. This only happened when I logged out of the backup server. When I just lock the server, the backup work fine and when I do the backup manually, it works. I have looked around Hi and Low, unable to find out my problem, until SP1. Yesterday, I installed SP1 on my backup server, verified the backup was scheduled, using the correct username and password (Domain admin account) and logged out. This morning, I came in, checked the event log and the backup ran, but it did not back up any of the mapped drives I have. But it did back up the Exchange Server. Here is what my daily.bks file looks like. Keep in mind that all of the drives are mapped, except the Exchange. It is backed up some other way, which was setup before I came to work here. I hope someone can help me...this is driving me out of my mind... When I lock the server or manually run the job...it succeeds. Logging out....thatís my issue....

    other then that, have u tried troubleshooting this issue as a permissions problem?
    not sure under which credentials ntbackup runs once you've logged off. probably "local system". that might be the reason ntbackup can't connect to the remote systems. maybe someone else here knows.

    we use backup exec for backing up remote machines. the backup exec services are running under a special service account which is a member of the proper groups granting the necessary access to the remote systems.
    Yesterday we stood at the edge of the abyss. Today we are a step further...

      Just a thought - are you selected the mapped drives in the backup screen? I would think that you have to navigate to shares through My Network Places for this to work when you are logged off.
