SharePoint Agent: How to add the Backup Exec Account
To ensure successful GRT restores of a Sub Site in MOSS 2007, the credentials used by Backup Exec for the restore job need to be a Site Collection Administrator for the Top-Level Site.
To confirm or add the account to the Site Collection Administrators Group, do the following:
Goto the Home (Top-Level) Site URL of the Sub Site you wish to restore
Click Site Actions | Site Settings | Modify All Site Settings
Click on Site Collection Administrators
Click on the Search Button to Locate and Add the desired Account
Once the SharePoint Top-Level Site has been modified to allow the Backup Exec account as an Site Collection Administrator the Backup Exec will have the correct credentials to create the Sub Site and its missing sub levels.
Run Sharepoint backup job.
