Site Backup, unable to select local drive

Recommended Posts

In preparation to upgrade to Configuration Manager 2012 SP1, I am having problems with the Site Maintenance Task - Backup Site Server.


The selection of the "Local drive for site server" is grayed out which prevents selection.


I have also tried to save to another server, but look to be having issues regarding what looks to be the path issue with the CreateFile operation.


I have attempted to use the workarounds listed at http://blogs.technet.com/b/configurationmgr/archive/2012/08/01/support-tip-a-backup-site-server-maintenance-task-may-fail-to-run-in-configmgr-2012.aspx, but without the access to select the local drive it makes it difficult.


I can't use the SQL Server instead since it's a cluster used by various things much more critical.


Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated,
