BUG #: 17114 (WINDOWS: 6.5)
The SQL Maintenance utility, SQLMaint.exe, ends in the following error if the path contains a period:
Error: The system cannot find the path specified.
For example, the following command gets the error:
SQLMaint.exe -D master -CkCat -Rpt E:\MSSQL6.5\LOG\master.log
To work around this problem, remove the period from the path, as in the following example:
SQLMaint.exe -D master -CkCat -Rpt E:\MSSQL65\LOG\master.log
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in SQL Server version 6.5. We are researching this problem and will post new information here in the Microsoft Knowledge Base as it becomes available.
