Cannot create a Backup Repository on a CIFS share with NAKIVO Backup & Replication.
The Backup Repository creation process fails with an error.
A Backup Repository is a folder used by NAKIVO Backup & Replication to store VM backups. When you create a Backup Repository, NAKIVO Backup & Replication creates a folder named “NakivoBackup” in the specified location and stores backup data and metadata in that folder.
Make sure that:
The folder where you want to create the Backup Repository already exists on the share.
The credentials that you are using to access the share have “read and write” permissions.
You are using a correct path to the share.
You can access the share from the machine on which the Transporter is installed.
Try using the IP address of the share server instead of the hostname to eliminate possible DNS issues.
If this doesn’t help, send a support bundle to NAKIVO Support.
