I currently use Ola Hallengren's SQL Maintenance scripts in my environment, including backups, since they support SQL Backup 6. We have a particular SQL server running 978 Databases. Since about a month ago, the backup jobs are 'failing'. By failing I mean that a couple of databases out of the 978 apparently are not backing up correctly or are not verified because SQL Backup is spitting out an error. I'm trying to understand what it means. Here's the log output from one of the 'failed' differentials.

Error verifying SQLBackup backup.
Outcome: Failed
Duration: 00:00:07
DateTime: 2011-03-15 01:04:43

Now, it seems to me that the backup completed, but the verification failed, but not necessarily because the backup file was bad but because some other external issue. It is stating the backup exit code is 110. What does that code indicates?

    Hi, thank you for your post into the forum.

    SQL Backup Exit Code 110, is a warning that SQL Backup was unable to to create or update it's log file for the task it is performing.

    SQL Backup creates a unique text log file for every backup and restore task performed. SQL Backup Exit Code 110 is generated when this log file cannot be created or updated.

    From the information you supplied in your forum post, the backup and verification process was successful for this backup task.

    The location of the SQL Backup Log files and ensure that you have sufficient free disk space in this path:
    T:\Program Files\Red Gate\SQL Backup\Log\(local)Also check that you there is no Anti-Virus application performing an on-access or real-time scan placing a lock on the file. Most AV applications perform this type of check by default. If possible disable the on-access or real-time scan for the SQL Backup Log file location and for the backup file location.

    Bit of extra information for you, SQL Backup exit codes fail into two categories which are Warning codes and Failure codes. Warning exit codes are between 0 - 499 and failure exit codes are 500 and above. Also, if generated, SQL Backup will obtain the SQL Server Error code which makes our job easier to understand what caused the error.

    I hope the above answers your question.

    Many Thanks
