    We engaged ICS to perform an ESP and MSP.  We noticed our backups (which used to work) were failing, and we were told it is a Microsoft issue.  The error message is:

     

    Failed-1073548784) Executing the query "BACKUP DATABASE [Search_Service_Application_Analyt..." failed with the following error: "Invalid device name. The length of the device name provided exceeds supported limit (maximum length is:259). Reissue the BACKUP statement with a valid device name.

    Does anyone have a resolution for this?

    If you're using a SQL Agent Job there's a ton of resources available on the internet: https://blogs.msdn.micros...r-management-studio/

    Not sure how it would change, but sounds like the Job needs updated, or deleted and re-created.
