iSCSI configuration

I have a customer using Backup Exec 2012, They have been using 2010 but the scripts need to be deleted and re-created.

I am doing this without any problems, but when it comes to selecting the destination I cannot select the iSCSI drive S:

I have tried connecting to the servers sharepoint aswell but get a Authentication error.

How can I configure an iSCSI backup location?

Hi,

 

You'd obviously carve out your iSCSI storage and present to your server, formatting it and giving it a drive letter. THis is what you have done already.

See if you can create a folder on the S:\ drive through Windows, and then add this as a storage location within BE.

If need-be, unpresent, and then present the S:\ drive again.

THanks!

Hi CraigV   I have

Hi CraigV

 

I have disconnected and reconnected the iSCSI drive but Backup Exec cannot see the drive.

I take it I would be adding this under Disk-Based Storage and then selecting Disk Storage

Sorry for only replying now,

Sorry for only replying now, but when you want to add a B2D folder to BE you'd use Disk-Based Storage.

To remove the LUN itself you would do this through the iSCSI initiator.
