Hi, all of a sudden my backup job failed with the error.
Cannot open backup device '\\remotesqlserver\e$\Backup\databasename.bak'. Operating system error 53(The network path was not found.).
1. The path does exist (meaning there's no typo error) tho i can't reach \\remotesqlserver outside sqlserver on my system and also i can ping the remote server.
2. I have made the Backup folder on the remote server a shared folder for 'Everyone' and it still didn't help
3. The Sql Server and Sql Agent service account are the same and its an Administrator tho i don't know if it has access to the remote server or the backup folder. It should right?
So please help! and if there are any more checks i need to run kindly let me know, i'm new to this. Tnx in advance.
