You cannot do this.  Role-based BE account is not available.

You can use restricted BE accounts, but this will only prevent modifications to jobs, etc. that are created by the restricted accounts.  It iwll not prevent other users from running jobs.

You should restrict people from logging on to the media server if you don't want them to run jobs.

You can set up e-mail notifications to the users so that they can see the status of the jobs without having to log on to the BE console.

Hi pkh

If the windows user a/c is not belongs to the Group of Administrators or Backup Operators, do they still have the right to run backup / restore jobs?

No.  They will not be able to run backups or restores.

You might want to use a remote BE console to further isolate the BE console.  See this article
