Sharepoint Backup

  Asked By: Krista    Date: Jun 20    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1009

Trying to backup the SP databases so I can restore
them on a new server, but the backup fails with a
rights error.

From the event log

Event Type: Error
Event Source: SharePoint Portal Server Backup
Event Category: None
Event ID: 0
Date: 5/10/2006
Time: 9:57:18 AM
User: N/A
Computer: NTMNTQ02
Content index backup failed. Error: The service did
not start due to a logon failure. , Server:
NTMNTQ02, Application:

D:\Sharepoint Backups-DigicaSo1_SERV-NTMNTQ02.SPB

Any ideas what could be wrong? The services are all
started correctly.

The sitedbs backs up fine but the index fails.

Are you using Windows Scheduler to run this? If so, does the account have enough privileges? How about the account that runs the backup? Does it have sufficient privileges to write to your d: hard drive?
