My team is creating a maintenance plan for our SQL Server 2005. Our backup needs to be written to another server so we're using a UNC path. One member of the team (who's running the SQL Agent jobs) has full access to the other server. But we've run into a problem: The statement keeps failing.
EXECUTE master.dbo.xp_create_subdir N'\servernamec$SqlServerBackupTest'
This is the error we keep getting:
Msg 22048, Level 16, State 1, Line 0 xp_create_subdir() returned error 123, 'The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.'
Anyone seen this problem before?
