Backup-to-disk - Unable to create folder or specify user credentials.
I have a dedicated backup exec server sitting on my domain.
I have 2 TB of disk space on a server in another domain that I don't have admin access to.
I have a username/password for a UNC share on the foriegn server.
I *CAN* backup this server as in backup selections I can set a username and password to connect to it as, however this isn't what I want to do with this space. I want to use it for backup-to-disk space.
When creating a backup-to-disk folder, there is no apparent method of setting which login credentials to use for this folder. Ideally I should be able to set different credentials for each folder, as each one might be on a different server, domain, etc, that I may or may not have full control of.
I can not set the backup exec service to run as an account in a foriegn domain, this bombs (expectedly).
I'm running Backup Exec on Windows 2000.
I do not know what OS the disks I"m connecting to are running on, but I can map \\ipaddress\sharename\ and create folders via explorer. However backupexec appears to try to authenticate as the account it is running as, which obviously will never have access to that folder.
Advise? Ideas? Is this supported in 10.x?
I'm stunned there isn't an option on the wizard to specify alternate credentials!!!Message was edited by:
