1. Symptom –

–>You are trying to perform SharePoint farm backup from central administration on to a remote location whose address is  \\backupservername\sharepointbackup but it is not making any progress or showing any status change on the page “Backup and restore status” page i.e. Backupstatus.aspx

–>It only shows the message “There are no current or recent backup or restore processes to show. If you recently started a backup or restore process, you may need to refresh this page after several minutes for it to appear.”

2. Cause –

–>SharePoint server did not had the proper permission on the server
