The network name could not be found (\\server\admin$\complusbackup)

The error is reported during backup for a SQL Server backup set.


The protected SQL server is clustered and the Windows cluster holding the SQL application is version 2008 or newer.


Due to Windows API limitations, the IP of the virtual SQL cluster node must be used instead of its name when creating the backup set in DS-User.
