Backup directory not found using Ola DatabaseBackup

I was executing the backup using the service “Domain\SQL.BACKUP” to the shared directory, but I end up with the below error message always. This service account is different from that of the Agent Service account. The directory exist and the account I am trying to use has FULL CONTROL over the directory and subdirectories. I tried with sa and other accounts too but still it is failing.

I tried providing the local backup path, it throws the directory exists but I give the directory check from SSMs, it fails. For security reasons, I have b

locked the share path.

Please advise.

This issue usually occurs when SQL Server Service account don't have proper permission on shared directory. Did you ask your AD admins to verify the service account and its permissions?
