Directory does not exist or the Sql server service account and the service account don not have permission to read or write to the back up folder

You receive  following error when you try to restore backup from local or remote network location:

“Directory (restore machine path on domain) \\testserver\backup does not exist or the Sql server service account and the (back up machine path on workgroup).

domain\accountname service account don not have permission to read or write to the back up folder”.

In my case, I was logged in to one of my WFEs and created folder in the WFE and then tried to use the local folder path like D:\Backupdata which was giving me the above error. I later realised that the path really didn’t exist as the D:\Backupdata was created on other front end when i logged in couple of hours ago and when I reclogged in the loadbalanced server the load balancer has switched the server to the different WFE and D:Backupdata didn’t exist on this server. So it’s always better to enable sharing of the backup folder and provide names in the restore like \\servername\backupfolder rather than D:\backupfolder.


Lesson learned!

Hmm it looks like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess
I'll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog.
I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for inexperienced blog writers? I'd certainly appreciate it.
