New Backup Repository

Post by ChristianBarrett » Mar 30, 2016 2:49 pm

Trying to setup a new Backup Repository on a share on another Windows 2012 Server on a Remote site.

I am using the correct UNC and username/password, I can access the share through Windows.

Getting the following error: Unable to detect storage parameters for path \\servername\share$\folder

I have tried a local account and a domain account.

Veeam Backup and Replication 8 (fully patched)
Windows Server 20102 R2 Hyper-V.

I\d appreciate any ideas as I have exhausted Google and my limited knowledge of Veeam...

Are you able to add that Windows Server as a Windows repository using the same accounts?

Vitaliy S,

I tried to setup a Windows Repository, and it failed...
Access is denied, failed to create a persistent connection to ADMIN$ shared folder on host [10.240.10.130]. Failed to install Service [VeeamDeploymentService] was not installed month host 10.240.10.130.
The account I'm trying to use does not have access to the ADMIN$ share, and why does it require the VeeamDeploymentService? This is where I need to sit down and read the Manaual...

Christian, local admin account should have access to this share. Once you're able to access it, it would be possible to add your server as CIFS repository.
