Backup job failed - "file manipulation operations"


On some occasions when scheduling maintenance jobs like, Full database backup, Shrink database, Differential backups, index maintenance jobs we oversee the schedules and end up with jobs running into each other.

This will definitely lead to bigger errors and failures at any point in time. One such error we come across in such situations is the following.
 
"Backup, file manipulation operations (such as ALTER DATABASE ADD FILE) and encryption changes on a database must be serialized. Reissue the statement after the current backup or file manipulation operation is completed."
Note: This is just the part of job history.
 
Fixes:
  • All we need to do is be alert and make sure we have the correct schedules for all the jobs without allowing any of the jobs running into each other.
  • If error or failures, make sure to change the job schedules and confirm if it works fine.
Hope this helps!
