SQL Backups failing on SharePoint Search_Service_Application_AnalyticsReportingStore

Copper Contributor

Hi all


I'm getting an error in the event logs saying the differential backup failed but no database listed. From what I can tell its the SharePoint Search_Service_Application_AnalyticsReportingStore. All other differential databases work. We get the same error when the full backup maintenance plan runs on that database. There are no logs that report an error in the SQL logs. In actual fact it doesn't even show a log suggesting this database was attempted to be backed up.


Anyone know if this database is critical to backup or if there is any specific processes one needs to put in place to back it up or why this might be happening?
