Sybase IQ 16 Backup Issue: unable to determine disk freespace

Hi,

I want to backup Sybase IQ 16 Database to a USB external Drive (F:\) by script:

     BACKUP DATABASE TO 'F:\Sybase Backup\BISYBASEIQ_bk_20150111'

However, receive an error:

Error during backup/restore: unable to determine disk freespace on F:\Sybase Backup\BISYBASEIQ_bk_20150111

Please kindly advice, many thanks!

Cliff

    Hi Cliff,

    This is likely a permlission issue.

    Is the IQ server running as Windows service?

    Regards,

    Tayeb.

      Hi Tayeb, thanks:

      That was the first help I found on internet.

      But I am not secure if the User that I used  have the right permissions.

      I had add the user as "Log on as Service right" with this Microsoft manual:

      -Add the Log on as a service right to an account

      -To add the "Log on as a service" right to an account on your local computer

      -Open Local Security Policy.

      -In the console tree, double-click Local Policies, and then click User Rights Assignments.

      -In the details pane, double-click Log on as a service.

      -Click Add User or Group, and then add the appropriate account to the list of accounts that possess the Log on as a service right.

      But It still isn't the solution for me.

      I will create a new user on the domain, and will probe.

      Thank you a lot.
