I guess the easy answer to my question is 'Something doesn't have the correct permissions'. =P. I read Backup Exec b2d NAS, but that didn't really answer my question.
I have poked around the Admin guide and google trying to nut this out, but I'm not really getting anywhere very fast and I am loath to call Symantec support if I can avoid it.
The basic setup:
Windows Server 2003 - SP2
Symantec Backup Exec 10D
I want to create a B2D job to the NAS, and have used the UNC path
\\<NAS DEVICE NAME>\<TOP LEVEL SHARE>\<BACKUP FOLDER>\. However as soon as I hit 'OK' an "Access is Denied" error pops up.
The NAS has properly joined the network domain and I have given the 'veritas' AD user full read/write access to my NAS share via the Cisco Web Interface and added the 'veritas' user to the AD 'Backup Operators' group (though this group does not appear in the Web Interface as a domain group I can give access to, leading me to suspect this step might be moot) and the funny thing is I can actually browse to the folder within BE10D!
I'm obviously missing something pretty basic here,
I'm just not sure what. Can anyone give me a pointer?
Ah, damn it. I realised after posting yesterday that I had connected to a local drive (Got B:\ somehow confused with Z:\), not the NAS. Therefore I am a giant dumbass and have not solved this yet.
I am still getting an "Access Denied" message when using the UNC path, after adding permissions for the 'veritas' user on the NAS Share, the folder I am backing up and adding the user to the "Backup Operators" group.
I have tried mapping the IT_Admin share on the NAS to
Z:\ and used the path
Z:\Backup\ which gives an error saying "The system cannot find the path specified". If I add "\\" in front of the drive letter the error changes to "The network path was not found". I’m pretty sure using the mapped path wouldn’t work anyway from I read over at http://www.symantec.com/connect/forums/bacup-network-drive-backup-exec-10d.
The device name is "NSS324", the top level share I created is "IT_Admin", I have created a folder at the root of the share called "Backup". I feel pretty confident the UNC path of
\\NSS324\IT_Admin\Backup\ is correct. Could someone higher level possbily be able to confirm?
I don't want sound like I am asking to be spoon fed, but really not sure what else I can give the user permissions to, in order to get this to work. Anyone feel like throwing in their 2c?
