NT backup and mapped network drives
Posted on 2006-11-16
I have a problem with NTbackup 2003 SBS. The server is one of many production VMware guest severs on a host machine. I need to backup the SBS server DATA files to another server’s hard drive that is not on the domain but connected via a router on a different subnet. I have created a user named backup with the same login and password credentials on both sides. I created folders for each day of the week. I can map a drive to the "target" machines folders (meaning where I want the backups to go). The problem is when I log out the network drive is no longer connected. Is there anyway I can maybe add to or write a script to have NT backup map a drive before the job starts to that the job will run successfully?
