Error (1314): A required privilege is not held by the client.

I am getting Error: Could not start Post Job Command < c:\postjob.bat >. Error (1314): A required privilege is not held by the client. when trying to run a post job batch file.

It is running on backup exec 9.1 on win2003. Can anyone help me get the post script to run? I have reset the service creds and also tested the batch file as the backup user which is an admin.

Please check your windows remote agent credentials.
It should use the Local system account.

On the remote servers it is running as local system account.

It is running as my network backup account on the BE server. Should I try this account change on the back up server ?

Thanks It was the service not running as local system that was causing my problem.

Thanks for you help.
