Backing up Workgroup VMWare VMs
Still getting my head around BE, so please bare with me here. We are running BE 2010 R3.
We have got an ESXi 4 environment with about 30 virtual machines. Some of the virtuals are in a DMZ and are not part of the domain.
When I try to back these ones up using the System Account (which is a Domain Admin) I get an exception that I cannot perform GRT-Enabled restores becuase BE was unable to collect the necessary metadata. I came across the following link:
This made me think that I needed to use the local admin account for that server on the VM (System account on the host, and local admin on the VM). However when I did this and ran a backup I got the following:
Completed status: Failed Final error: 0xe0001605 - Access is denied (VMware backup). Final error category: Security Errors For additional information regarding this error refer to link V-79-57344-5637
I came across this, but I am lost:
I am not sure how I can set a local admin account to have the required permissions on the host so it can get to the actual VM.
Or am I going the complete wrong way here?
