Hello, when I create a maintenance plan only for integrity check, i got the error. I have tried many things, nothing worked.

I would skip a maintenance plan for integrity checks. Here is what I use:


DECLARE @dbId int, @dbName sysname, @SQL nvarchar(4000)

SELECT @dbId = 0

WHILE @dbId < (SELECT MAX(database_id) FROM master.sys.databases WHERE database_id > @dbId AND state IN (0, 4))
      SELECT TOP 1 @dbId = database_id, @dbName = name
      FROM master.sys.databases
      WHERE database_id > @dbId AND state IN (0, 4)
      ORDER BY database_id


      EXEC sp_executesql @statement = @SQL

Just create a new Agent job and then use that as the job step.

To see exactly what is happening in your maintenance plan - you need to view the maintenance plan history and not the agent job history. Under the Maintenance Plan in Object Explorer, highlight your maintenance plan and View History.

This will tell you what the actual error is that is causing the plan to fail.
