    Win 2008 R2 backup

    I am trying to schedule a system state backup to a network share using
    Windows Server Backup (Win 2008 R2). The backup runs fine when it's run
    manually, but it does not run when it's scheduled. Is there something I am
    overlooking or is it a problem with Win 2008?

    Did you use the full UNC path \\somelocation\share\ or did you use a
    mapped drive letter?

    I used UNC in both cases.

    Hi Steve,

    can you pls post your wbadmin command string ?
    In your case it should be something like :
    wbadmin start backup -allcritical -backuptarget:\\yourbackuptarget (-quiet)

    An scheduled backup can also be created with wbadmin and should then look
    like this :
    wbadmin enable
    backup -addtargetiskID -schedule:09:00,18:00 -include:e:,d:\mountpoint,\\?\Volume{cc566d14-44a0-11d9-9d93-806e6f6e6963}\
    Reference from Technet ->

    Hope that helps

    Regards
    Ramazan

    I am not using any commands. I used the GUI provided with under admin tools.

    configured this before with the GUI but is the assistent asking you for an
    username which can be used for backup purpose ?
