I'm just not running any SME on bare metal (and haven't been for at
least 8 years). All my SME Servers are VM, amongs other VM. So I needed
a generic backup solution. I usually run BackupPC on the hypervisor
(which is mot of the time a plain CentOS server)

Can't say. I never used the builtin backup function. In fact, the very
first thing I did on SME (12 years ago) was working on BackupPC to have
a reliable backup solution. Since then, I'm running it.

BackupPC won't do this. It won't use a CIFS share. It's a backup to disk
solution. You need a dedicated disk (or pool of disks, depends on your
needs). You can then generate archives from this and store thelm offsite
(on NFS, CIFS, what-ever you want), but you still need the main backup
store on disk.
