I received alerts from one of my database servers over the weekend that was somewhat disconcerting. There was an alert for each single database within the maintenance plan.
A full backup has never been taken for database *SeanDatabase*
I've had a maintenance plan in place for years that has run without fail and the associate logs backup this claim. Also, the backups are time stamped and in the place expected.
I did a restore in a test environment and ran a consistency check without any errors.
I'm not sure that I really see this as a true error or cause for concern considering the aforementioned evidence. So, maybe this is just an anomalous event? Either way, I'd like to poke around and a assuage my sensibilities.
Has anyone ran into this situation before? If so, what did you do to investigate?
