I have a single Windows Server 2003 and SQL Server 2000.
I have created a maintanance plan to back up my SQL data
base as well as the transaction log. I am getting this
error in my event viewer and haven't been able to figure
out why. I have recreated the job, making sure I was
signed in as administrator and it didn't change
anything. I have also gone into Logins under enterprise
manager and the user xxxdomainxxx\administrator does not
exist and I an not able to add it (it says it can't find
it). Any help is appreciated. Thanks
