I am trying to configure backup for my 6.7 appliance but it seems like SMB is not supported. What I heard from vmware that in VCSA6.7 we have SMB supported. So am I missing something in here. I am configuring it on my file server which definately have SMB configured thats why user across the environment are able to use that. But VCSA does not seems to recgnise it. Anyone faced this before ?
try an administrative share (like \\server\c$\.... ) .
but take a snapshot before testing. i had massive problems with smb backup (6.7U3) - it killed my vcenter twice. finally i switched to scp and its working for over a year without problems
I am afraid thats not what I am facing. I have SMBv1 enabled and it not at all takes the location. It says SMB is not supported as you can see in screenshot.
Ah that means I should probably not go with SMB option as it is not much reliable. I need to figure out SCP server(Linux appliance) to configure the backup. I am more of a windows guy(lol) so dont know much about SCP configuration. Do I have to enable this protocol on one of linux server I will be enabling to have backup stored or no changes require on server just server name and a shared path is enough of it?
