You cannot create/add a Backup Repository on a Linux OS. The error message states that the Transporter cannot read and/or write to the specified location.


  1. Make sure the folder where you want to create/add the Backup Repository is managed by the “bhsvc” user.
    To assign the “bhsvc” user to the folder, run the following command: chown –R bhsvc:bhsvc /path_to_the_folder
  2. In NAKIVO Backup & Replication, create or add the Backup Repository.

After the Backup Repository is created or added, make sure that files and folders have correct permissions:

  1. Navigate to the Backup Repository folder.
    For example: cd /path_to_the_folder/NakivoBackup
  2. List directory contents by running the following command: ll
  3. Make sure that the “transit” and “raw” folders have the following permissions:
    owner rwx
    group rwx
  4. Make sure that the “.desc” and “.desc2” files have the following permissions:
    owner rw-
    group r--
  5. If permissions are different, set the right permissions by running the following commands:
    chmod 770 /path_to_the_folder/NakivoBackup/folder_name
    chmod 640 /path_to_the_folder/NakivoBackup/file_name
