SMS_SITE_BACKUP SQL Writer not found



Recommended Posts

I went to try to enable this function on our SCCM Primary site. Our SQL is set up on a separate server. When I try to run the SMS_SITE_BACKUP I receive the following error (see bolded sections). I have googled and tried various fixes for hours with no luck. The most common suggestions are to check all services on SCCM Primary site and SQL server- all related services on both the primary site and sql server seem to be running/starting/stopping fine. Other suggestions tried - verify SMS writer and SQL writer as existing and functioning and also making sure NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM on SQL server has sysadmin rights on SMS_XXX database. Has anyone ran into this problem or would have any more suggestions

 

Thanks!
