We use Symantec Backup Exec 2010 to backup to a Netgear ReadNAS which has been working fine, up to now.  The daily incremental jobs always work, but I get a failure on the weekly full back up job every time.  The byte count looks right and it runs in about the same time it used to take, but I always get an error E00084F4.

I am using a dedicated domain account for Backup Exec services which has full access, but still I get the failure.  Here's some more info:

It looks like the Backup client cannot resolve the servername of the NAS from the DSN-server.

If you replace the servername by the IP-adres (I presume you have given the NAS a static IP-adress) do you still get the error??

I cannot change the path name of the backup to disk folder, it's greyed out but I have added a route in the local hosts file to see if this makes any difference.

Solved it.  I needed to use iSCSI on the NAS and format the partition as NTFS, Backup Exec doesn't work properly on non  NTFS backup to disk partitions.
