Hi expert. I have installed the SQL server management studio 2013 in the server machine. I have set up the back up plans and schedules from the backup maintenance wizard of the maintenance plans. But nothing was back up. I have done the same thing for another testing machine, but it is working fine. Please advise! Thank you for your time!

    Is SQL Server Agent running?
    There are no bugs - only undocumented features.

    Yes, it is running.

    When the SQL server was installed in this machine, it was not assigned the instance name. Is it this reason that the automation couldn't start? Thank you!

    In The SQL Server Agent Folders I see the back up scheduled file name. In the Job activity monitor, it shows FAILED in the last run out, but it doesn't say what caused this. Thank you!

    Right-click and "View History" on the failed run

    Executed as user: NT service\SQL SERVERAGENT started. Th package could not be loaded. The step failed.'. Thank you!
