Good afternoon,

I have a SQL Job which performs nightly differential backups of all databases on one of my production servers. Unfortunately the Job failed last night but I'm struggling to work out the cause of the problem.

The SQL Job error is:



SQL error log shows:



Please note that the database name in the SQL error log is not the same name in the SQL Job error. Although I've masked the database name, I can tell you that there are different.

I also checked space on the NAS and there's plenty of it.

Any ideas?

The output of the text in the log file viewer for a job is only the top X amount of characters, the error will be somewhere else down the output, so either query the sysjobhistory table to get the full output or log the output to a file which you can review should the error happen again.

Must be the moon. I'm going through the same thing with a full backup that failed twice over the weekend. Once well before the time change and once after. The backup actually completed and then it said that the connection could no longer be resolved. Like you, I have plety o' space on the backup drive.

Arrgghhh, the above output is actually the last part of the string from the job log history table so I'm afraid it's all I've got to work with.

You will need to set the job to log to an output file then in the properties of the job which will capture the full output so that it can be reviewed on another failure.

Thanks Anthony.

I've reconfigured the job to output the log to a text file.

Let's see what happens tonight.

It turns out that two of my databases didn't have full backups which explains why the differential backup job failed.

Thanks for the suggestion Tony!
