Group: Awaiting Activation
When creating a local repository, there is a spot to provide authentication credentials; this is the same screen where you put in the path for the location repository. On a hunch, I left this blank and just put in the path. It allowed me to create the repository without credentials and I was able to run a test backup. Everything ran fine - I see the image on local drive of the managed server.
So my question is, what is the purpose of the credentials? In what scenario would I need this? It appears to work without it.
