Backup/Restore Image /w Network Drive


Recommended Posts

Good day Everyone --


I'm attempting to use the Disk Image backup mechanism from the IDE.


I am able to mount the Windows shared folder via running this from the shell:

mount -t cifs -o username=username,password='password' // /media/shared


The password does have some special symbols, so I wrapped it with single quotes.


I am able to access /media/shared no problem.


However, if I attempt to use IDE in the Backup (Disk Image) menu, I receive an error unable to mount (Using the same credentials as command line)





Unable to mount host computer's shared drive: \\ on /media/shared. Backup process aborted


I Do notice the double backslash vs double frontslash is one of the possible issues.

When I click the proceed button, does the above CLI command get executed?


If I do not use the single quotes around my password, i get an error from CLI. I suspect this has something to do with it. Are you wrapping the user's password when building the command for linux cli?


Thanks in Advance,
