Unable to Change DHCP Backup path to UNC path/shared folder or Mapped Network
Drive. I get Access Denied or Invalid Path.

I do have full rights to the UNC path/shared folder. I am able to read and write to the UNC path/Shared folder. I also tried to change the DHCP backup path on the registry, but to no avail.

My ultimate goal here to send our current DHCP backup to one of our DHCP "Standby" Backup server.

Please help.

Chances are the SYSTEM account running the backup does not have rights to the shared resource.  How about mounting the shared resource as a local drive and taking it from there.

Is the backup running under your user account or the SYSTEM account?
