What I am trying to do is do a manual backup to a windows server cifs drive and I am not sure it is possible.
Purpose: Do a manual pool metadata backup to a server on a remote subnet/pool.
Software: XenServer 6.5
In Pool B, I have a windows server with a folder share that I would like my metatdata to be backed up to from Pool A.
In the Pool A I have a cifs SR that points to that windows share. When I do a manual backup from the Console, the cifs SR is not listed and also when I create the backup on another SR and try to move it in XenCenter, it does not allow me.
This tells me that it is either a rights issue or it is not possible. The cifs drive has the domain admin credentials entered for logon.
I hope someone can assist.
I was doing it this way as my knowledge of the commands console is not that great.
Thanks again for your time.
