    Hi all,
    I have a problem to back up the server by the schedule jobs. I set up a
    schedule jobs to do the back up every night at 12:00, but since last week.
    The system will run the backup.exe but every time is terminate. I have check
    all the setting in the job, it's look everything ok.
    The setting is
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    C:\WINDOWS\system32\ntbackup.exe backup "@C:\Documents and
    Settings\Administrator\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Windows
    NT\NTBackup\data\dailybackup.bks" /d "Set created 11/05/2005 at 12:23 PM"
    /v:yes /r:no /rs:no /hc:eek:n /m normal /j "dailybackup" /l:s /p "4mm DDS
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    and the report is
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Cannot locate the specified media or backup device. This backup operation
    will terminate
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    But I can use the manual to do the back up
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

  2. Try the /um switch for unmanaged backups.
