I can't seem to figure out what should be simple. I have a bunch of files on a CIFS share (FreeNAS box) that I want to put on tape with a File to Tape job. I have the share showing up as a backup repository of type CIFS. When I create a new Tape | Files job, my only options on the "Files and Folders" dialog is the Veeam server itself and all of my backup proxies... the CIFS share is NOT listed there and I can see no way to select files from it.
This leads me to believe that I've missed something, somewhere. Do I need to add the CIFS share to some place OTHER than Backup Repositories? If so, I sure can't see where. I also tried to add my NAS as a "Managed Server" of type SMB3, but that clearly only works on real Windows boxes... so what am I missing? Am I supposed to just map a drive to the CIFS share from the Veeam server so it looks like local storage? (Note that this share is not really a backup repository I'm using... I just tried adding it as one because that was the only option I could find to add the share to Veeam) Also, I'm NOT trying to back up Veeam backups to tape... just a bunch of normal files sitting on a share.
