Problems configuring NTBackup Windows 2003 Server to backup up to non windows box

Hi Experts,

I'm trying to get Windows 2003 server ntbackup to be able to backp to a non Windows (Mac OSX) box. the NT backup job was created under a windows domain administrator account. So I'm assuming that it will run under this account..which obviously does not have access to the Mac Share.. I'm not sure how exactly to run this job under a different account that we have created on the Mac Box. We can access the share using the Mac account from Windows using the UNC: \\[ip address]\share --> prompted for credentials --> enter credentials of Mac user and bingo. So.. I believe I need to configure the NTBackup job to run under this account..?? Any ideas would be appreciated..

thanks in advance!!

Thanks for the reply ylitvinov!

I think that might work. I'll give it a try and let you know how it goes
here the tutorial how to backup workstations using mapped network drives:

it's worked for windows based workstations, i can't guarantee that it will work with Mac. But it's worth to try.
