Good Day,


SQL backup jobs are failing because step 2 fails with the following log msg:


Executed as user: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM. The statement BACKUP LOG is not allowed while the recovery model is SIMPLE. Use BACKUP DATABASE or change the recovery model using ALTER DATABASE. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 4208)  BACKUP LOG is terminating abnormally. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 3013).  The step failed.


The command causing the error is


BACKUP LOG UnityDb TO UnityDbDump


Replace LOG with Database and all works OK; however, that is not really a solution.


It's partner server, located at the other end of the country is also failing the same job with a slightly different log message:


The job failed.  Unable to determine if the owner (<Domain>\UnityInstall) of job SqlNightlyBackupJob has server access (reason: Could not obtain information about Windows NT group/user '<Domain>\UnityInstall'. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 8198)).


I would like to know my next step.


Thank you in anticipation.

The UnityInstall Domain User was already a member of BUILTIN\Administrators; however, added user but popup returned a Error 15405: Cannot use the reserved user or role name 'dbo'.  I could not drop dbo from the database because UnityInstall is the db_owner?.  Now I cannot delete the Login without actioning the following popup: Removing this login will remove all associated database users (if any). Are you sure you want to remove this login?.  I responded with No.  Backup jobs continue to fail with the same symptoms.  Just checked owner of Unitydb and Reortdb; both return UnityAdmin.


Ran the job as sa: The differential step 1. DifferentialUNityDbBackup worked fine.  Step 2 BackupUnityDbLog failed with the same message as my other box: Executed as user: "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM. The statement BACKUP LOG is not allowed while the recovery model is SIMPLE. Use BACKUP DATABASE or change the recovery model using ALTER DATABASE. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 4208)  BACKUP LOG is terminating abnormally. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 3013).  The step failed".


Further assistance would be much appreciated
