Win 2008 R2 backup

#1
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 -addtarget:DiskID -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 ?
