Anybody know what a 669 is?
the "Error code reference - SQL Backup" page here skips from 668 to 680.

Edited Link: http://documentation.red-gate.com/displ ... 500+-+5292

The version i'm running is 7.4.0.23
Thanks!

    SQL Backup generates a log file for each process that it runs. The default folder where the logs are stored is C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Red Gate\SQL Backup\Log\<instance name> on Windows 2003 and older, and C:\ProgramData\Red Gate\SQL Backup\Log\<instance name> on Windows Vista and newer.

    Could you please post the contents of the log file for the backup that failed?

  • SQL Backup Exit Code 669 indicates that the start-up account for the SQL Backup Agent service does not have read / write permissions to the SQL Backup registry folders.

    Please check the following registry folders and ensure that the account given to the SQL Backup Agent service has read/write permissions to the following registry folders:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Red Gate\SQL Backup\BackupSettings\<InstanceName>
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Red Gate\SQL Backup\BackupSettingsGlobal\<InstanceName>
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Red Gate\SQL Backup\InstalledInstances\<InstanceName>

    Where <InstanceName> is the name of the SQL Instance for a named instance or (local) for the default instance?

    Many Thanks

    There must be something else that causes this error because I have assigned the new Service Account Full Control of the entire key from ..\BackupSettings down and I still see the error.
    I am trying to change the SQL Backup Agent Service account. It is a member of SysAdmin fixed server role on the instance. SQL 2008R2 Standard on Windows 2008R2 Data Center.

    It turns out account needs access to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Red Gate\SQL Backup\BackupSettingsGlobal as well.
