BU Exec 2014 - Event ID 33808 - Cannot create B2D
Posted on 2014-08-16
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?
