Symantec Backup Exec 12

Seagate Backup Plus Desktop 1TB USB 3.0 External Hard Drive (Google Affiliate Ad)When setting up Symantec Backup Exec 12, and using a NAS(Network Attached Storage). If you have problems creating Backup to Disk Folder on a remote NAS, such as a Thecus N5200. I recommend you follow the following instructions (on Windows Server 2003)

  • Click Start, Control panel, Stored Usernames and Passwords
  • Click Add, Then enter in the Fill out the sheet
  1. Server {Either the IP or the Name, if it is in the DNS}
  2. Username {type it in or choose it from the list, ie N5200\backupagent}
  3. Password {type in the password}
  • Repeat for each NAS
  • Verify the credentials work
  1. Click Start, Run and then then enter in the ip or Name of the NAS+ Backup folder ie \\\backups
  • Then go back into the Symantec Backup Exec Control Panel and create the folders
