I have a client which has the BE2010R3 on win2003 server. Trying to backup a remote win2003 DC server which is in the same network. Backup Exec account that we are using is not part of domain admins group but it is in the administrators group. When we backup the c drive it works but when we try to backup system state we are getting this error.
V-79-57344-65149 - AOFO: Initialization failure on: "System?State". Advanced Open File Option used: Microsoft Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS).
Snapshot provider error (0xE000FE7D): Access is denied.
To back up or restore System State, administrator privileges are required.
Check the Windows Event Viewer for details
If I use NTbackup it backes up successfully.
I tried to use IP of DC in user defined selection but that also does not work.
Just for isolating the problem I added the backup exec account in the domain admins group and now backup works. But my client is not allowing to added backup exec account to domain admin group.
Can anyone suggest something on this particular issue.
Thanks in advance to everyone.
