EA db backup job failing
« on: March 22, 2013, 11:08:15 AM »
In my console there is a scheduled task for backing up the DB.

The job keeps failing every time it runs. In the console i get the text with  UNKNOWN ERROR.

In the server log I get this:

Code: [Select]

The database path exists and is writable, besides that the standard path with %AVASTPATH% was set and failing too, but don't have logs from that.

The database is functional and runs on a Win2k8 R2 server with SQL 2k8 R2 .
I can do regular tasks perfectly.

anybody else noticing this problem?
