We are using SQL 2016 and just recently ( last two week) the jobs created by Maintenance plans to delete old bak-files fails with this error:
" Executed as user: NT Service\SQLSERVERAGENT. The process could not be created for step 1 of job 0xDD36461A167E074EBB758BD23B9E5BD1 (reason: Access is denied). The step failed."
I haven´t change anything and it has been working before.
I have added NT Service\SQLSERVERAGENT to the bakup-folder with full access but no difference.
What could be the cause to this ?
