From a few days I'm not able to performe backup. Backup always stuck on the same level - eg backup files have 10GB in jobs I see running backup proces and that it, backup stuck. When I delete that job in the Check backup and restore job status I see Backup or restore is already running.

I restarted server but nothing is changed.

What can I check/do to solved this issue?

Best regards,

Are you Backup on shared folder, if yes then check SQL Server permission there on Shared folder. For me it looks like permission issue.

Yes it will do SharePoint part properly but when it will try to do the backup of SQL Database, that time it will use SQL Server Service account may be that account will not have permission to Shared folder. Another thing you have to Keep in mind SQL Server Service Account should be domain account and Shared Folder Should have read, write permission for that account

  • Yes it's Sheard Folder but the backup is running and part of backup is saved corectly on sherd location in backup logs there is a timeout.
