Cannot create a Backup Repository on an NFS share with NAKIVO Backup & Replication.
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 keeps backup data and metadata in that folder.


Please make sure that:

  • The folder where you want to create the Backup Repository already exists on the share.
  • You have read and write permissions to the share.
  • You are using a correct mount path of the share.
  • The "Squash" option is set to "map all users to admin".
  • You can access the share from the machine where Transporter is installed.
  • Try using IP address of the share server instead of hostname to eliminate possible DNS issues.

If that doesn’t help, please send us a support bundle.
