I'm testing that we can recover a machine from a backup on backup-to-disk folder on another machine. I rebuilt the server as a standalone machine, part of a workgroup, not on the domain. The idea is to restore the backup and the server will re-appear on the domain, correct SID etc.
I have to create the backup-to-disk folder before I can restore from it, but when I do, I get "Access denied". Yet I can read/write the remote folder in Windows Explorer and from a command prompt, so I'm sure it's not simply a permissions issue.
Has anyone been in a similar position of trying to link to an existing folder?
