If DataDomain, be sure that the cifs add command has been used to allow access from each service console IP and vRanger computer
Remove the Repository from the vRanger GUI (Do not deleted any savepoint)
Add a new CIFS Repository
Use the same name as the original one.
If the credentails are fine, use the same ones, confirm that the Repository is accesible, and confirm connection to the repository using CMD ping command.
In the new Repository use the ip address instead of the FQDN name.
Re run the job.
