I am having an issue restoring/backing up or running any command to a UNC path. I have a cluster and have created a File Server role. I have instances on both nodes so I want to backup/restore to the File Server role share using the UNC path \\Backups. The issue I am having is the command takes 1 minute to start every time and then finishes within a few seconds. If I run the same command pointing to the drive directly "e:\backups" the command finishes very fast. Does anyone know why the command is taking a minute to start when I am pointing to the UNC path?
