backup target not available!?

Post by Xeronimo74 » Nov 08, 2019 10:36 am


Some of my Endpoint installations have suddenly started to throw 'backup target not available' errors although the backup target is definitely there and accessible. Sometimes it helps to simply edit the job and click next, next, next and then, for some weird reason it works. Sometimes this doesn't help though. Sometimes it helps to enter the (same!) password of the backup user again, sometimes not.

It also seems to be the case mostly on recent Veeam Endpoint installations.

The backup target is a QNAP NAS. On one machine it kept failing with the above error. So I deleted the job and created a new one (on a Synology NAS). That seems to work, for now ...

Any ideas as to what could be going on here?

Hi Xeronimo!
Hard to say, and its best to troubleshoot with support.
Might be an account lock \ concurrent authentication limits for same user on your NAS or something like that.
Feel free to open a case!
