Error while invoking backup_MSSQLException: TDS Protocol error

java.sql.SQLException: TDS Protocol error: Invalid packet type 0x64 at


Based on the Email screenshot it looks like you have the "TDS Protocol Error" message. We have seen this message occur under different situations and mostly it is a SQL or network related issue. 

* You have network connection issue between the application and the SQL server.

* There is another backup happening when the application tries to back up the database.

In most cases, when you re-schedule the backup to a different time (outside of operational hours), the issue will be resolved. 

If you continue to receive such backup failures even after scheduling it to different hours, please keep us posted.
