Problem using BackupExec to store data on Netgear NAS

Hi.

I have a problem creating a Backup-To-Disk Folder in Symantec Backup Exec 11d for SBS. The problem is that the folder I want to create is stored on a Netgear Stora NAS. I can access the shares on this Stora box, and I can create and delete content, so the permissions should be correct. I have mapped drives to letters and want to use these letters for storage for backups from Backup Exec. Backup Exec however, claims it has no permissions to access this drive. Also, I cannot find the drive letters in Backup Exec, only local drives. I can, however, use \\[IP-address]\[folder], but it says it has no access to the location...

Is this possible to fix, or does Backup Exec 11d for SBS not support a remote NAS for Backup-To-Disk Folders?

I think you would have to upgrade to BE 12.5 or BE 2010 for SBS as per the link above.

As the ready nas is a linux based box, it requires a linux agent to communicate with BE.

Hope it helps
