    VCSA 6.7 U2 - New Backup Over SMB

    TrophyWife Novice

      Cool backup vCenter to SMB share now in 6.7 U2!

       

      I can't get it to work! Not sure what I am missing.

       

      The helpful 'example' in the path shows:

      protocol://server-address<:port-number>/folder/subfolder

       

      Share I want to backup to is a Windows 2012 R2 share.

       

      Port? I thought it would be 445.

       

      My example:

      SMB://10.1.1.1:445/hiddenshare$/subfolder

       

      I enter my domain account that has full control on share and NTFS.

       

      I get a "SMB location is invalid" error.

       

      Where am I going wrong? VMware doc doesn't give examples.

       

      Thanks!
