I am using the domain administrator account for the SQL agent startup as indicated on services...
I have also verified that the administrator account has the owner role given to it under the roles section of this particular database in Enterprise Management Console...
This user account has full rights to the \\backupserver\share\path that I wish to back up the files to.
I recieved this error when manually ran the optimization portion of the job trying to rule out a network user permission problem.
