SQL server 2008 R2 agent jobs starting failing with following error:
"The job failed. Unable to determine if the owner (domain\login) of job MaintenancePlan - ABC.Full backup has server access (reason: Could not obtain information about Windows NT group/user 'domain\login', error code 0x5. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 15404))".

Any help.
Thanks

Do not use sa. create a user with the permissions needed.

It is a best practice. By locking the sa account you have one less security leak point.

We don't use sa either, but it's easier to reply to use sa as people will know to use whatever sysadmin account replaced it.

So our jobs owners point to our renamed sa account rather than sa. We rename it for sid purposes.
