BU Exec 2014 - Event ID 33808 - Cannot create B2D

I upgraded a working Backup Exec 2012 install to 2014.  Since I upgraded I cannot add a new Backup to Disk storage.  When I go through the prompts, and press Finish is brings up an error dialog box that says:  "Unable to create the disk storage.  The parameters is incorrect"

Checking the event log it throws 3 new events, all with event ID 33808 & the same message for each:

 An error occurred while processing a B2D command.
 Changer: MoveMedium() Attempt to Lock Slot Failed (\\tardis.lcl.local\backups\Obiwan\Backup_Exec\Folder.lck).  Error=5

The new backup storage is a Centos 6 box running samba.  This box is working fine, and I can access (read/write/delete) to the share from the host box no problem.

The other 2 storage nodes I have are an old centos 5 (similar setup to the one I am attempting to create), and an old 2008r2 file server.


Any ideas on how I can get around this error to create a new storage for B2D backups?

just a guess but error 5, means access denied.

the backup exec services account needs permission to write to that location.

The issue has been resolved.  There was a permissions issue on the destination storage.  This has been fixed, and Backup Exec created the Storage no probel,
