I have some CIFS Shares on a NAS that I want to backup and I currently do this by using a subclient on a Windows File iDA that simply connects to the UNC path.
I’m replacing the box that the existing subclient sits on so I need to re-create it and I have two options.
- Same as before but use a new File iDA.
- Add a NAS/Network Share client and use the new Windows File iDA as a data access node.
The end result is my UNC path is backed up so I’m not entirely clear what the difference is between the two methods and why I might choose one over the other?
