I am hoping to be able to have Symantec Backup Exec (2010) connect to some Windows machines via their IPC shares for backup.
It seems to work for a couple machines I tried, but several others it's not.
For example, I was able to add a user defined selection (when creating a job) and type \machinename\c$
I was then able to click on that in the user defined selections and it showed the contents of the C drive.
However, for a few other machines I tried, it will either say 'communications error'. I think I was also getting a timeout error message. It will also say "Query failed" in the right window pane where the files should be displayed. Backup exec is set up to use a domain administrator account, and logged in as that user on the backup exec machine I can mount that ipc share with no issue by typing \machinename\c$
