Backup Exec NAS error

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Hi everyone,

I have a problem with a NAS for the use of backup exec.
It is an iomega storcenter ix2. I want to use a shared folder on this NAS for the backups of backup exec.

When I want to add a new Backup-to-disk folder, I get the error which is enclosed in this message. When I just specify the path (without browsing to it), then the backups are written to the location, but I still get the message that the backups are failed..

I can login to any other device with these settings, but not on the iomeganas..
There are no permissions denied on the folder.. When I use my explorer to browse to the path, it is possible.

Any ideas why it isn't working? Mabye the NAS isn't supported for the use of backup exec?

The error-code in backup exec is: E00084AF

I hope you can help me.
