Using a CIFS share as a basic disk storage unit

I created a CIFS share on a NAS device and want to use the CIFS share as a basic disk storage unit for a Windows 64-bit 2008 R2 Netbackup Media server.

The OS can see the CIFS share and map the network drive.  However, I keep getting a 83 error code when I either specify the complete URL to the CIFS share, or the mapped drive.  I tried changing permissions on the NetBackup remote services to run with the same username and password for the NAS device, but still getting the same error.

Is a CIFS share suppported as a basic disk storage unit for NetBackup?, or is it just with NetBackup 6.5.5 and Windows 2008 R2.  I'm having no problems configuring a NFS storage device.  

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
