iSCSI configuration

Created: 17 Sep 2012 | 3 comments

I have a customer using Backup Exec 2012, They have been using 2010 but the scripts need to be deleted and re-created.

I am doing this without any problems, but when it comes to selecting the destination I cannot select the iSCSI drive S:

I have tried connecting to the servers sharepoint aswell but get a Authentication error.

How can I configure an iSCSI backup location?

You'd obviously carve out your iSCSI storage and present to your server, formatting it and giving it a drive letter. THis is what you have done already.

See if you can create a folder on the S:\ drive through Windows, and then add this as a storage location within BE.

If need-be, unpresent, and then present the S:\ drive again.

Hi CraigV

I have disconnected and reconnected the iSCSI drive but Backup Exec cannot see the drive.

I take it I would be adding this under Disk-Based Storage and then selecting Disk Storage

Sorry for only replying now, but when you want to add a B2D folder to BE you'd use Disk-Based Storage.

To remove the LUN itself you would do this through the iSCSI initiator.
