Timed out waiting for a backup repository resource..

Post by v.tom »

Hi,

During backup jobs who run parallel, we get the following warning in a SQL transaction log backup:

"Failed to prepare guest for SQL Server transaction log backup Details: Timed out waiting for a backup repository resource to become available for log shipping"

Is this a sign we have to increase to number of concurrent tasks on the backup repository?
Or are the log shipping servers too busy?

Hi Tom, SQL Server logs backup itself doesn't occupy a repository slot, so it should be something else. I recommend contacting support as logs investigation is required.
