SQL backup job - failed

Hi,
Appreciated anyone who can help us with our problem. Our backup job
for ROUTT database has been failing for the last 4 days. It was
working fine for almost a year now. The only thing happened few days
before the problem started is the addition of more memory to the
server because we've been getting the low virtual memory error. There
are two databases in this server so we have two backup jobs everyday.
The other backup job runs with no problem. Can someone give us any
suggestion please. Listed below is the sql log.

Thanks,
Teresa

First and foremost. Ensure your backup drive has enough freespace.

Maybe a BIG transaction log and an increase in the DB size? How much
disk space do you have free on the drive you are doing the backups to?

I would test that you do a manual backup. This will remove any
problems that you may have regards to scheduling the job. Assuming
that you have enough disk space I'd set up a performance monitor trace
to check the SQL memory and other parameters to check what is going
on.

Hi,
Thank you very much for helping us out. It turned out that the
application is still link to the database when the backup ran.

Hi, I have scheduled backup job on MS SQL server which appends full backup, verifies it and then it should eject tape. But upon finishing it says that job failed. I checked backup and it seems okay, database was backup-ed on tape and tape was ejected at the end of execution but job status was failed. Here is a code of backup procedure created with "backup database" option.

I am getting a failure on the db backup job of one of my maintenance plans. It is coming back with the generic error message of, "sqlmaint.exe failed. (Error 22029). The step failed." I then checked the Database Maintenance Plan History page, but this shows all the steps having run successfully. If I check the drives for the actual backup files, they exist and look healthy too!
