BE 2010 R3 issue with system state backup on Domain Controller

This issue has been solved. See solution.

Hi there,

As the Title states, I have a DC box that is backing up find however only the system state returns and tells me I dont have sufficient admin rights to backup the system state.

Now I understand on a DC/GC the user rights are different and not as per standard on a W2K8 R2 box as you know, so I would like to know what groups/entries should I look out for and add the default login account on BE?

I have tried everything and I just cannot seem to get this working, the other file level backups on this box works fine, its only the system state that fails with the admin rights issue.

Regards,

Jaques

The DC system state contains AD which requires domain admin rights to back up.
