failed to get disk free space on CIFS repository

Post by asmithdms » Sep 28, 2017 4:50 pm

Hi all,

I'm attempting to use a CIFS share on a FreeBAS (FreeBSD running SAMBA) server, but when I attempt to add a repository I get the error "failed to get disk free space" and it won't let me add it. Well I say that, earlier today all of a sudden it worked, but after having run a test job to the new repository the job fails with an error about not being able to check free space on the repository and if I try and add a new repository again now its giving the same error as before.
The Veeam server is Windows 2008 R2, FreeNAS is v11 and Veeam is v9.0.0.1715.

I've found a few people with similar problems searching for the error but none with a solution that helps me. Anyone any ideas? Surely backup to SAMBA must be quite common? Hoping its something simple I can change!

thanks, Andy.

Hello Andy,

Unfortunately, it’s hard to say why you got this error without application logs. If you want this issue to be investigated, kindly, open a support case and let the team check the logs. Do not forget to share the case Id in this thread for future reference.

in case its of help to anyone else, everything has been working fine since I added the registry setting:

Key: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication\
DWORD: NetUseShareAccess = 1

As per KB1735

thanks, Andy,

I have found that it makes a difference if you enter "full" credentials so not admin but IP\admin, not sure it's universal, but it helped me.
