Maintenance Plan for SQL Server 2005 64-bit doesn't work! RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,
    We have a SQL Server 2005 64-bit, and recently I upgrade from build 3042 to 3054 and I try to do a maintenance plan for transaction logs(TL) backup, including cleanup for two days (have full backup every night).

    Problem I have is that I want the TL files to dump in a different location(due to disk space), so I put in the UNC path in the "Create a backup file for every database - >Folder:\\FileServer\TL\DBLogs"

    NB: if using the local drives,  it work

    Check List
    - The account that I used to create the plan is an sa account
    - The location that I dump the TL files, I have full access to the folder

    SQL Statement:
    exec xp_cmdshell 'dir \FileServer\TL\DBLogs' (it list all files)

    Is this a bug for 64-bit? because I can do this on SQL Server 2005 32-bit and it's work perfectly
