I'm having trouble using an iSCSI drive as a place for backups.  FMS13 sees it as a remote volume, not internal drive.  When I attempt to "verify" the path to the D: folder, nothing happens.  Can't verify, can't save.  I can only revert.

 

Essentially I have the server software on the C: drive and I want to use the D: drive as a place for backups.  Has anyone out there been successful using an iSCSI drive for nightly backups?  I have verified permission on the folder on the D: drive that I want to use as storage.

 

FMS13.x.5, Windows Server 2012

 

Thanks in advance

Nope.  iSCSI is considered a NAS since it goes over TCP.  Too fragile to be considered for backups.  You can use OS-level scripting to copy or move a backup to that drive and have FMS run that.
