error VFF not installed on backing up to shared network path

Created: 12 Nov 2012 • Updated: 21 Nov 2012


I'm having a problem on backupexec 2012. I setup backup to tapes and to a shared drive. backing up tu tape is OK, the problem is when i backup to the shared drive i get an error saying that VFF is not installed on backup exec server.

There we have 4 servers



Srv3 - backup exec server

Srv4 - Shared drive for backup

Backup exec can backup srv4 to the remote network drive with no problems but all other server fail on backup with the same error.

What should I do?

Thanks in advance!
