ESM Add Storage Device Syntax Help

I am trying to add an external storage device for my ESM and am having issues with the syntax for mounting point and remote path. I have configured a windows server for NFS storage and have had no luck in getting a connection (there are no known network issues, they are both on the same local sub-net and can ping). Does anybody have examples of the required syntax for these fields that have been successful?

Re: ESM Add Storage Device Syntax Help

The fields should be as follows:

Share Type: NFS
Remote IP:
Remote Mount Point: /nfs_backup_dir
Remote Path:

What errors are you getting when you do the test connect?
