I have created a new repository so I can run some test backups. The repository is a network share running on a Windows 2012 R2 server. I have validated it, however, its star does not go green and when I try to select it in a VPG it is not listed.
My suggestion would be to contact support if you haven’t already. They should easily be able to resolve this for you.
This has been resolved it took 24 hours and then it could be resolved and the green tick was present.
