Trying to create a backup device for a new db. I'm using management studio and just using the "New Backup Device..." wizard and giving UNC path to the backup directory.
There is a pre-existing db on another server, it has backups working to the same Samba share.
I'm setting up backups for a new db on a new node, same vlan/subnet using the same share, same domain account for the SQL service user.
I can access and read/write just browsing the UNC with Windows Explorer The share is presented as Samba from Gluster storage on RHEL.
Node1: Working node:
Node2: Not working node:
Both directories have the same permissions and ownership, I've tried pointing the path from Node2 to the either share but I get the same result with either paths from Node2:
This means that the path can be found, but the permissions aren't working.
The directory is owned by a
email@example.com user from the file server and can be accessed by BOTH nodes in Windows with full read/write with the service user
firstname.lastname@example.org, but it doesn't work via SQL Server backup device creation? Help. Please.
