Hi there.

I'm trying to configure SMS 2003 to do a backup but nothing's happening. I've checked the error logs and it says that I have an invalid backup destination path but the backup is being performed to a local drive inside the SMS installation directory. The SYSTEM and Admin accounts have got access to the directory.

The one thing I have noticed from the logs is that it appends a SITECODEBackups to the path. Do I just type the path or the filename as well? Or is it something completely different I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance

well after a lot of messing about it turns out that it helps if you read the error message which quite clearly states that you cannot backup the SMS site into a folder within the installation directory.

Backed up site to a separate directory on the same drive but in the root and hey presto.
