backup exec 2012 credentials problem

Created: 01 Aug 2013 | 5 comments


I have a backup exec 2012 server on windows 2003, both upgraded. But I have credentials problems with the BESA.
The test with credentials was been failed but I think that all permissions are ok.

The following is what I've done.

It is member of the folloing AD groups:

  • administrators
  • domain admins
  • backup operators
  • domain users
  • Exchange Organizations Administrators
  • Exchange View-only administrators

Also it has the folloing gpo

  • Act as part of the operating system
  • Backup files and directories
  • Create a token object
  • Logon as a service
  • Manage auditing and security log
  • Restore files and directories
  • Take ownership of files and other objects

and,finally, all the be service run as BESA.

What  I miss ?

Im a bit confused at what it is that you mean by all services are running as BESA... some services should be running as Domain\Admin and some should be run as System Logon... Please view the document below and verify that your services are running as such

I hope this posting was helpful

It could be cosmetic. Can you run the actual job?

Does it fail with credentials error?
