Backup Failed - SCCM 2012 SP1

Hi Experts,

I got a Lab environment in which i am trying to backup the site server. I tried many ways to fix it but still the backups are getting failed. When i checked component status SMS_SITE_SQL_BACKUP_XXXXXX is failed.

Will this be an issue. Please help me to fix it.

I tried below steps like

Windows firewall - Stopped
Verified Install.map
Antivirus file exclusion done on MCAFEE
Restarted the WMI service
Remote file share created for backup content storage

Rebooted the primary site server. Still no joy.

 I overlooked your previous log. It's the sql backup task that's preventing your backup.

SQL Backup did not complete or abort. You must wait till the backup is completed or aborted before you can start off another backup.

You may have to cancel the sql backup task that is running currently.

the below links will help you do that.

What about one of the ConfigMgr Services (don't know the exact Name and I have no Server next to me right now)? Is one of those backup related ones still running?

Hope VSS is not an issue.. if u see the above log. But i can see the below event logged recently. Is that creating it?

Any advice experts....

Yes, I know this is an old post, but Im trying to clean them up. Did you solve this problem, if so what was the solution?

Since no one has answer this post, I recommend opening  a support case with CSS as they can work with you to solve this problem.
