Ive been having a lot of trouble setting up safepoints. Ive just finished proving a theory and would like others to confirm this.
My admin account has a strong password (special characters, upper, lower, and numbers).
If I set up a fresh user with this strong password I can use the credentials to mount drives etc. No issues. If I try to set up a safepoint it fails with the credentials it fails saying incorrect password/user
If I change the password to “t1” then safepouint set up works. If I set it back to striong password it fails. Ive switched back and forth 10 times atleast and this success/failure pattern is acting this way EVERY time. So I think it proves there is something wrong with the complexity, length of password (or password + username) or complexity.
For testing purposes, this fails: user admin4backup ~!@#$1234AaA,
this succeeds: admin4backup t1
this succeeds: admin4backup ~!@#%1234AaA, (% instead of $)
So its the $ that isn’t being passed (parsed?) properly.
