how to grt backup windows vmachine working in different domain than virtual hypervisor

Created: 09 Apr 2014 | 2 comments


I have question.

I would like to set my backup job for grt on HA Hyper-V virtual machine.

The problem is that my hypervisor host work in domain A and windows virtual machine is in domani B. 

Also there is no trust between domain A and B.

Is there any posibility to get grt backup form cluster backup?

Or i need to backup just that wirtual machine?

I couldn't find any place to specyfi set of credentials for virtual machines.


Hypervisor host is windows 2008 r2, same v-machine and I use backup exec 2014 sp4

Thanks for all advices

Best Regards

Have you tried to put the remote domain's account used for Virtual Center into the media server's list of allowed user accounts, and then used this to connect to the remote VC?

Thx for reply.

If im correct then you mention credential for specyfic vm on backup configuration page.

I tried to change credential for that vm on that from domain it work (before posting here).

After that backup fail because backup couldnt backup vhd with need credential from hypervisor domain.

If you talk about someother place then i dont know what it is.
