About authorizing NetBackup-Java users on Windows

To use the Java Windows Administration Console, first log on to the NetBackup-Java application server. The application server is on the NetBackup host where you want to perform NetBackup administration or user operations.

To log on to the application server, log on to the dialog box that appears when the console is started. Provide a valid user name and password for the system that is specified in the Host name field of the log in dialog box.

The user name for Windows must be of the form: domainname\username

domainname specifies the domain of the NetBackup host. The domain is not required if the NetBackup host is not a member of a domain.

The NetBackup-Java application server authenticates the user name and password by using standard Windows authentication capabilities for the specified computer.

If NetBackup Access Control is not configured for the users, by default the NetBackup-Java application server provides authorization data. The authorization data allows all users who are members of the administrator group for the host's domain to use all the NetBackup-Java applications. Other users are allowed to access only Backup, Archive, and Restore.

To restrict access to NetBackup-Java or some of its applications, create a nbjava_install_path\java\auth.conf authorization file.
