Volume on iSCSI target (NAS) disappears during backup?

by Mr Davo » Thu Aug 03, 2017 1:29 pm

Hi All,

I have a backup to NAS configured, and am able to successfully test the iSCSI target (Right Click NAS Backup Job > Edit > Edit [Destination] > Test Connection) on the NAS from Backup Assist (v8.4.2r1).

Furthermore this backup has run ok in the past, but has recently stopped, and now presents the error below -

Retrieving volume information...
This will back up (EFI System Partition),System(C:),Managed(M:),Data(D:) to
... \\?\Volume{3094786f-c7a8-4d18-acea-7f89bc292ee0}.
ERROR - The specified backup location could not be found or is not a
supported backup storage location.

It appears that the iSCSI volume (\\?\Volume{3094786f-c7a8-4d18-acea-7f89bc292ee0}) disappears during the backup job.

I have raised a support ticket (from within the BA software, but am yet to receive a confirmation email) however any additional help would be greatly appreciated.

Kind Regards,

Mr Davo

Hi Davo,

It's Stuart here, thanks for posting.

I don't believe that the iSCSI target should be disappearing during the backup (at least not by design). I think we'll need to take a look at the logs and unfortunately I haven't seen the submission you sent in either.
However since you've had issues using our automated support tool please follow these steps to manually send in your diagnostics file:

Browse to the following folder on your system:

C:\Program Files (x86)\BackupAssist v8

Look for a file named BackupAssistDiagnostics.zip and send this to us directly.

If you find that this file is too large to email directly; please upload directly to our support team via http://www.backupassist.com/BackupAssis ... submit.php.
Please note that there is a 50MB file size limit.

If you have issues getting the diagnostics across to us, then please let us know as we'll need to find an alternative way to receive these.
