This server was recently installed and configured. I was in the process of creating some maintenance plans to backup the logs and DBs on a daily basis. Regardless of my method to perform a full backup, it would fail immediately citing the generic error message
Error: 3041, Severity: 16, State: 1.
I've never seen this before and wasn't able to find much during research. I've verified that the associated service account has permissions to the backup folders and there is more than enough space.
