I have a ubuntu 12.04 running and have certain things installed like samba,nagios and likewise-open to have my ubuntu join a windows domain. this all works correctly. I am not an expert in linux although I do know some basics.
What I am trying to do is use
deja-dup to backup my ubuntu machine to a windows shared folder with the windows-share method?
at the server line I filled in the ip-address of my windows server.
at the folder I put
username is the username I created for backing up. (I have read somewhere that it usually works to have the same usernames on a Windows server and Ubuntu machine with backing up)
domain name my domain name.
I am not sure I have the syntax right at the folder it is supposed to back up to
When I click backup now it does connect to the windows server and it asks for a password. After I fill it in and press enter it says that it can't mount the windows share. When I go to that server with Ubuntu file explorer, it just connects and mounts the folder fine.
Has this something to do with permissions? Or am I doing something wrong?
