SQL SERVER 2012 - SSMS - After modifying and saving a step in an Agent job, I got the following error:
Executed as user: <username>. The process could not be created for step 2 of job 0x32F9AADA510072498BE0DE5962827EED (reason: The system cannot find the file specified). The step failed.
The job was edited in SSMS and saved. The edit was a new pathname for the backup job. The pathname was copied (ctrl-c) from the target server and pasted into the job. When I got the error I tested the copied pathname by logging into the server with the login and tested it. The server could see the pathname. I was able to make the changes by scripting out the job, editing the script, renaming the old job and re-running the modified script in SSMS. The job ran successfully. I also tested this by copying my correctly running line with my new (and correct) pathname, saving and running the job, starting with the step. The job failed. With this test there were basically no changes to the text but the job should have run.
