px12-400r LenovoEMC & BACKUP EXEC

Created: 30 Apr 2013 | 13 comments

Hello 
I have a px12-400r LenovoEMC with firmware version 4.0.2.9960. 
I use Backup Exec 2012 and when I enable a shared resource in the "Allow users to change the file-level security" Backup Exec can not access resources to capture the backup. 
Is there any posibildad to solve this problem? 
A greeting and thank you very much

You can test the drive with the B2DTest below

B2Dtest.exe

If the test fails, this means that your configuration is not supported.

Hello
The problem is when trying to store copies on the NAS, but when I try to read shared folders from the NAS.
Thanks for the answers

Hi,

The problem is where? Trying to backup to the NAS, or from it? Your statement above isn't quite clear.

If it's backing up TO the NAS, that NAS is capable of iSCSI. Invoke it, carve out your LUNs and present to your media server. Create your B2Ds and then backup that way. I've done it on these NAS's and they work very well.

If it is a case of backing up FROM the NAS, have you tried to integrate that NAS into Active Directory? This should get around any possible authentication issues you might be experiencing.

Thanks!

Hello
I'm trying to make a copy of the shared resources generated in the NAS.
The NAS is associated with active directory users have no problem accessing and setting permissions.
The problem is when Symantec Backup Exec attempt to validate to these shares.
I tried to use Active Directory users and administrators local NAS users with the same results.
Thank you.

Hello
Thanks for the reply. Yes, Symantec Backup Exec user is administrator shares and NAS.
The NAS is an appliance (LINUX) managed via web and the options are limited.

It is curious that to select items to copy me to list the contents of the shared resources, but to validate the security or to execute the copy fails

...well versed in the Iomega StorCenter NAS's (we actually moved away from them and now scope HP P2000i's in their place!).

So, the backup doesn't run at all?

Don't test the credentials.

Try this: Add your domain admin account into BE, and use this as the account to access the NAS.

Thanks!
