We just upgraded from a 2018 version to 2020.2.1 and have found that it's not accepting our UNC share for Config Archive nor can I change it back to the default local path. It was working prior to the upgrade and I've verified I can access said share manually using the credential set in NCM. Said credential validates in NCM without issue. It just insists it's an invalid config archive directory.
Experiencing the same issue after upgrading to 2020.2.1 (from the previous version) - definitely not a credential issue and have tried even workarounds such as mapping the drive of the UNC path.
The issue seems to be around the Network Share Setting to use custom credentials from what I've seen. It's strange, but that setting disabled, it accepts the path even though it does not have access to it? I've temporarily turned off the custom credentials and am doing backups locally.. not a great fix, would love to know how to resolve this.
I had the same issue, I reported the fault to Solarwinds three weeks ago and this is the reply:-
