Unable to connect to SMB://[IPV6]/share datashource from Acronis Backup 12.5
I try to connect to Samba share using IPV6 IP address but Acronis Backup reports error connecting to the share
smb://[IPV6 Ip address]/share
Failed to resolve the host name due to a network error.
The specified file does not exist.
Error code 0x00590051+0x00040011

Connection to IPV4 shares looks ok. Which format we should use to specify SMB IPv6 addresses?
Currently there is no pure IPv6 environments support in Acronis Backup 12.5, which means that some scenarios may work (like accessing web console), but some (like accessing network shares) may require IPv4 usage. This feature is planned for future versions with no ETA which we can provide at the moment (internal feature ID for reference: ABR-53979).
It's very sad :(
Half of the network which is ipv6 is not accessible from Acronis Backup...
Both IPV6 SMB and NFS can not be accessed from Acronis Backup agents, only IPV4.
Error code: 64
Message: The NFS server is not available.
Error code: 65521
Message: Resource temporarily unavailable
On the 'positive' side the same Linux box with Acronis Agent installed can mount both SMB and NFS IPV6 with no problem.
Sounds like IPV6 address format is causing some issue or confusion in Acronis Agent code and should be relatively easy to fix using different characters or adding logic to interpret both IPV4 and IPV6 formats (IPV6 not a new technology in 2019 anymore)
