  • 1.  Cannot create backup job

    Posted Feb 02, 2021 08:44 AM

    Hi,

    I would configure backup job to SMB share but I get an error: "Failed to mount the remote storage"
    I can ping from vcenter shell to smb share.
    Using the same credentials from other PC I can browse SMB share.
    My applmgmt.log:

    I have no idea, I had previously one backup job but deleted it (expired password), now I'm trying create new one but have these errors.
