Server 2016 w/Essential role, cannot backup clients

Recommended Posts


I have been having trouble backing up the three clients on my Server 2016 w/Essentials Role. I have a message about the backup database having errors. I have run the Database Repair feature multiple times, but it always fails to complete. 

I tried deleting all files in the Client Computer Backup folder and running a backup for a client. Still does not complete. All backup related services seem to running on the server and the clients. 

This all started around May 27, 2018.  I have seen posts about Win 10 1803 update causing issues, but one of the clients is still Win 7. Has anyone heard of any other Windows updates that might be causing this?

I am not really server savvy. I got this version for a steal when my old original WHS died. I can follow directions well if anyone has any suggestions for this problem.
