Backups not running, "Storage location not available" using samba server as target

by kernel-sanders   Last Updated June 30, 2020 05:02 AM

I'm still pretty green with Ubuntu, but I had previously configured backups from one Ubuntu Server on my network to another to add redundancy to my family's file storage. This worked very well, until the day I updated both servers to 20.04 LTS... and since then I can't get rid of the error "Storage location not available" on the origin server even though I can ping and map the target network share from any computer (Windows, Ubuntu or MacOS) on my network.

I have made this share as wide open as possible (no credentials required) and I have gone so far as to reinstall the backup target host and reconfigure a new share, and it still gives me this error... if anyone can point me in the right direction I'd be grateful!

Thanks for reading.
