FreeNAS: Backup Repository Creation Fails
Product version: 8.5
Last Verified: 06 May 2019
On a FreeNAS device, the system cannot discover, import, or create a Backup Repository located on a remote CIFS share when the Onboard Transporter is assigned to it (which is usually the default scenario).
Is it possible to create, add or import such a repository to NAKIVO Backup & Replication?
Since the "mount_smbfs" tool of the FreeBSD requires kernel module loading and other operations that are not allowed from within Jail, the repository located on a CIFS share can only be added, imported or created with a non-local Transporter. To add such a repository, either add an existing Transporter or deploy a new Transporter on a different VM.
