Hi,

I have mapped network drive for backup purpose. It is showing server level. But it is not visible in Management plan at chose backup drive location.. what could be issues?

SQL Agnet account - running under Network sercive account.

Error Messages:

Operating system error 3(The system cannot find the path specified.).
BACKUP DATABASE is terminating abnormally.". Possible failure reasons: Problems with the query, "ResultSet" property not set correctly, parameters not set correctly, or connection not established correctly.

Thanks

Agreed on xp_cmdshell. The very simple procedure is outlined here.

You don't need to see it in the GUI to use it. Just use the UNC for the backup path and it'll work just fine.

RBAR is pronounced ree-bar and is a Modenism for Row-By-Agonizing-Row.
First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column.
If you think its expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur. -- Red Adair

Hi Anada,

Does your service account has permission to the network share?

You should be able to navigate to the folder when you are logged into the server and confirm by checking the folder permissions/properties?
