SAP HANA Backup error

Hi all,

When trying to run a Backup in HANA Studio we get an message/error which reports that the backup is failing.

The shared folder where the backups will be stored has the necessary permissions set.

The error we get is:

Could not start backup of system 'SH1'. ' Cannot open file ""<root>/.log_backup_0_0_0_0.1385931567067" (mode= W, access= rwrwr-, flags= DIRECT|UNALIGNED_SIZE|TRUNCATE|MULTI_WRITERS), factory= (root= "/mnt/backup/log/" (access= rwrwr-, flags= AUTOCREATE_PATH|DISKFULL_ERROR, usage= LOG_BACKUP, fs= UNKNOWN (cifs), config= (AsyncWriteSubmitActive=auto,AsyncWriteSubmitBlocks=new,AsynReadSubmit=off,#SubmitQueues=1,#CompletionQueues=1)))", rc=22: Invalid argument'

Does anyone have an idea of what we can check to resolve this error?

Thanks in advance!

The problem was with NTFS shares from windows.

We changed the backup location to an NFS share & the backups works now.

Verry annoying that the HANA backups don't seem to support NTFS (cifs in linux) shares.
