Adding secondary server to collective

I am trying to add a secondary server to collective using the PI Collective Manager tool.

Both of the PI archive servers are located on remote machines and share a common domain.

Adding the primary server to the collective succeeds, but when I try to add a secondary server, the PI Collective Manager prompts a window saying:

"The addition of a secondary server to a collective requires that a temporary backup of the primary be taken and copied to your secondary servers. Specify the directory on the primary server where the backup should write its file to.

Backup location:

c:\Programe Files\PI\Backup_2010522"


and when I press "Next", I am prompted with credentials saying:

"Connect to PrimaryServerName to create directory c:\Programe Files\PI\Backup_2010522 as..."

but when I enter the user name and password, it doesn't give the permission, as if they are wrong.

When I remote connect to that machine with the same credentials, I do get access.


Whay do I encounter that problem?
