Windows Backup Exec 12 not saving to OS X

Posted on 2008-11-04

I'm running Symantec Backup Exec 12 on a Windows 2003 STD server. On Backup Exec, I'm trying to create a Backup-To-Disk folder on a OSX 10.5 server share.

The OSX is joined to a Windows 2003 Active Directory. The shared folder permission gives domain admin full control. When I go to create the folder on backup exec, i get the error "Unable to create new backup folder. Access is denied".

It's strange because when I browse to the OSX Shared folder from the Windows server, I can create / modify / delete folders and files. The permissions on that folder everyone has full control, domain admins full control. The credentials I use to access the folder is the domain admin.

BTW I'm able to create a Backup-To-Disk folder on another Win2003 folder-no problems.

Any suggestions? What am I missing here?

    Is the account to access the share on BEX? From BEX, go to "Network" > "Logon Accounts..." > if you don't see an account, create one by clicking "New".

    I called up Symantec and they do not support backing up to OS X
