When I try and put in a UNC path for the Simplified Disaster Recovery Alternate Data Path, it does, it comes back with the error "the alternate data path is not valid" Then account it is trying to use has full rights to the path I'm putting in. what else could I check
Solved! Go to Solution.
The service account has to be able to access this path, not the account you are logged into the console as
- this is for a very simple reason: BE is designed to still run jobs when you are not logged in
Instead of naming it Backup Exec and SDR, would you pls try using other non-specific BE names.
Are you able to set an alternate path on the same server but different volume ? And have you tried setting it on a different server as well as a test ?
VJware, thatnk you for the response, but a share is a function of windows, if permissions are giving and logging in from the backup server with the service account and able to access that share, then the name of share is a non issue, unless now BE is having an issue. Are there naming conventions that BE cannot handle for shares? Putting the share on another Server\volume should not have an impact if I can use the service accoun to reach this share. I understand the thought process, but it seems BE is not recongizing the service account that is being used.
