    file, location or format ist not valid

    hello acronis forum
    for testing i installed acronis true image server for windows on a xp prof client. i created a boot cd and tried to create an image to a shared folder that is hosted by a server in a w2k3 domain. whenever i try to specify the target folder \\server\share\mybackkup.tib i get an error:

    the file name, location or format "\\server\share\mybackup.tib" is not valid. please type the file name or location in the correct format.

    the shared folder is open for everyone and i am authenticated with domain-administrator rights. i already changed the nic. no luck. any ideas ?
    thany you very much

    I think that by having the file name in the path is why you get the error. Make a folder on the server with whatever name you want to store the backup in, let's say "mybackup" so the path should be:

    \\server\share\mybackup

    and see if that works.

    Hello Hubert,

    Thank you for your interest in Acronis Server Disk Backup Software.

    Could you please clarify whether you have used the trial version or the full version of Acronis True Image 8.0 Server for Windows?

    Thank you.
