  • VDR Error: Configure Destination Error Data Recovery could not add the specified Netw

    Hi All,

    I'm having problem in adding the Shared network drive location for VDR version: 1.0.2.562 backup destination, it said:

    Configure Destination Error
    Data Recovery could not add the specified Network Share. Please ensure that your network credentials are valid.


    that was just the error when i tried to point into Windows Server 2003 shared directory free for everyone to write.

    I've got no problem in any other Windows in accessing that location using Servername or even IP Address without typing the credentials ? but how come VDR could not get access into it ?

    any idea of how to add the backup destination of VDR ? as I've got nothing to select at my screen at the moment ?

    Thanks.

    Hi

    Try using the ip adderss of the remote host you are backing the images up to.

    I believe there is a bug where you cannot use a DNS name currently when backing up to a CIFS share.

    Cheers

        This is documented - http://communities.vmware.com/message/1287571

        3 ) We document the requirement to use IP address for CIFS shares

        http://www.vmware.com/pdf/vdr_10_admin.pdf

        Page 18: URL - The location of the network share. This must be specified with the IP address. Server names are not supported.
