I am trying to create a backup plan for my TFS 2010 server. This TFS server (MRSPOCK) is not part of a domain. My backup destination folder is a shared folder on a Windows 7 Professional PC (SCOTTY). However, during the readiness checks I get the following error:
[ Grant Backup Plan Permissions ] Account MRSPOCK\Administrator failed to create backups using path \\SCOTTY\Backups [ Backup Tasks Verifications ] Account MRSPOCK\Administrator failed to create backups using path \\SCOTTY\Backups
The first results Google provided me was related to the backup folder having a space in its name, but mine hasn't. From what I gathered I assume the problem is due to the fact that my MSSQL service account does not have enough rights to write to that folder. When I tried to backup to a local folder this succeeded without issues. But of course, the point of backups is that they are not made to the same PC. :)
Unfortunately I don't know how I can do this as I cannot access the users of the other PC. Is there something I'm missing, or is there a workaround for my issue?
