While testing and working on creating backup schedule on VMware vCenter server appliance vami portal (Port 5480), I was receiving below error, whenever I was pressing Create button. Input which I typed Backup Location and Backup Server credentials were correct.

Path not exported by the remote filesystem

After trying different type of credential, I got to know Backup server credential User name is accepted in only email format for example: [email protected].
