Cannot connect Endpoint to repository server

Veeam Logoby skprmark » Mon Apr 17, 2017 4:51 pm

I am trying to setup a backup using Veeam Endpoint. I have configured the backup repositories in the B&R server. From the server I am trying to backup using Endpoint I can ping, RDP, traceroute and telnet to the B&R server and the backup repository server or from them to each other and the server being backed up. I have all firewalls off on all three servers. However when I try to setup the backup server in Endpoint I get the same result every time. "Cannot connect to a backup server (Server Name) Please contact your Veeam Backup and Replication administrator. Can anyone assist?

Just one additional note. I can connect to the default repository on the B&R server. But non of my other repositories.

Did you change the permissions? By default the permissions are full on a default repository (for testing purposes) but deny all on other created repositories.

Have a look here: https://helpcenter.veeam.com/endpoint/1 ... sions.html

Yes I did. I found the issue. I was not clear that you need to connect to the B&R server first then to the depository after that. I was trying to connect directly to the repository hence the failed attempts
