Background

On a FreeNAS device, the system cannot discover, import or create a backup repository located on a remote CIFS share in case the on-board Transporter is assigned to it (which is usually a default scenario).

Question

Is it possible to create, add or import such a repository to NAKIVO Backup & Replication product?

Answer

Since FreeBSD's "mount_smbfs" tool 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.
