I have a virtual windows 2008r2 server.
shared directory for doing wndows backups from system 7 pc.
I can access the drives, and map a network drive to them.

windows backup will see the drives but keeps telling me that it does not understand the user or password; but does understand the same usernames and passwords on a non-virtual server.  they are all 2008r2 servers.

the only differences is that one is virtual and the other is not.  How could windows backup know that?
