NTbackup won't run automatically

By awynn ·
Hi, I am running SBS 2003. The automatic back up has been running sucessfully for about 1 year. About 2 weeks ago it stopped. If i go on in the morning and run it it works fine. The screen is left logged on as administrator all the time. I am doing a full system backup to an HP LTO drive.
Any help would be appreciated.

Hi Andy, please tell us how often you are doing the full backup. Also have you tried to recreate the job.

NT back up wont run under scheduled tasks?

by awynn In reply to Try to recreate the job,

Thanks for the reply.
I have managed to recreate it to a degree i think!! If i go to scheduled tasks and try and run it from there it fails all the time, but from the backup screen on server management it works. If i go to the directory, c program files\microsoft windows small business server\backup and run bkprunner.exe it runs every time. So it appears to be an issue with the scheduled tasks, but the shadow copy runs fine using the scheduled tasks. I have noticed that windows update won't run underscheduled tasks, not sure if its related.

Thanks in advance
