The CDP Server can not create a directory:
Could not create disk safe directory at \\\rpiabk1\cdp
Typically, this issue is caused by the CDP Server Windows Service running as Local System User by default. Local System User likely does not have permission to write to the network share.

During installation, the installer requests you to select a user to run the CDP Server as. You have to specify a domain user (or user that has permission to the share).

To change the user to run the CDP Server as, follow the instructions below.
{info:title=Tip}You can do the same operation using the Windows Configuration Utility. See [CDP:Configuring CDP Server "Run Service As" Account] (Continuous Data Protection 3.0 Documentation).
