Seeing sporadic error on main sql server: Seems to always happen at midnight - not every night. The error states that a time difference exists , but when we check - there is no time difference and we don't see any log of a time change occuring on either server. The backup starts at 11:17 pm, runs fine until midnight and then errors cause it to fail. Happens once or twice weekly, not on the same nights. See errors below: Both errors occur on the main sql server. No errors on the backup server.
1398(There is a time and/or date difference between the client and server.) [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 3202) A nonrecoverable I/O error occurred on file "<our networked backup file location>"59(An unexpected network error occurred.).

Monday, September 26, 2011 2:59 PMRestarted the time service on both the main server and the backup server. That did not fix it - at least not permanently. Backup ran fine for several days - then this am at midnight...got the error again. Seems to always happen at midnight?

Monday, October 03, 2011 2:16 PMI am having this issue as well. Just sprang up for the first time a week ago.. when the maintenance plan does a full backup on the largest database (500-600 GB) to a network share. Manual full backups run fine. Any ideas?
