Storage - Add Account
When I try to add a local storage location on a NAS located on the LAN the OK button on the Account Account File System window is grayed out. I am using MSP360 Desktop Edition version
on a CentOS 7 server with GUI installed.
I am able to map the NAS using:
And read and write to the backup share folder on the NAS from the CentOS server.
Do you know what might be doing wrong in MSP360 in adding this local backup storage location?
Try it again without the SMB: prefix and see if that works.
Thank you. I tried that too but still the OK button is grayed out.
I was told that connecting to an SMB share is currently not supported in the Linux backup product natively but that it is a feature request.
I was told to please see this KB for a workaround:
I'm glad that this options is available. Has anyone else used this KB article procedure? This procedure seems a little difficult and a bit time consuming go set up. The local backup storage is to be kept on a Synology NAS if this matters. Does anyone know of any other options available? We want to backup locally to the NAS and also to the cloud.
That was my nest step - to post that KB article. Let us know if you have any issues. Thanks.
