  • If you do not see any relevant information in sql agent, then backup mostly comes from outside of sql server.But you say you are aware of symantec. So better confirm this backup at 11.03 pm is not from symantec.

    To find out session information, you need to query server information at that particular time.

    SElect Hostname, program_name, nt_username, loginame, login_time, spid 
    from sys.sysprocesses where cmd like '%Backup%'

    Hello,

    A normal SQL Server maintenance job would use a value for "Backup Name", in your screenshot it's empty. So I guess there is may an other external backup software which has a schedule to backup the databases. Have you asked your IT department if they use such a software?

    Then may a job is scheduled on a different SQL Server to run the backup from remote on this server; it's common the centralize SQL Server-Agent job management on one server.

  • Does expand the "device Type" button give you a clue? Also, does the errorlog file give more info for these backups?

  • Hello,

    Did you or other user use Windows Task Scheduler with T-SQL statement  to automate backup databases?
