Maintenance Wizard

GTM
I'm trying to backup several databases to UNC folders. I'm able to do it
manually for each database, but when I set up the maintenance plan it fails
because SQL tries to use the SQL administrator account to push the data.
The million dollar question is how does one change which account is running
the maintenance?

Change the account the SQL Server Agent runs under to a domain account.

Hi

Gregs advice is probably the root cause of your problem if the account is
set to local system.

If it is already a local/domain account the the permissions to the
shares/directories/trusts etc... need to be in place.
