Veritas Backup Exec 9.1 - Password Protected Drives
Posted on 2004-04-08
Just got finished installing Veritas Backup Exec 9.1 on my W2k3 Server.
One of the machines I need to backup is a Windows 98 box.
I can browse the Domain tree (we are on a NT4.0 Domain) and view the target machine and what seems to be 2 mapped drives or shares. When I select the drives to drill down deeper it prompts me for a account that is allowed to access the drive.
I see the backup exec service account I created during the installation in the list, but I have a feeling that it is prompting me for another account because there is a password on the drive itself....so even if I authenticat to the domain as a domain admin...its prompting me for a drive specific password.
Since it is just a drive password, i do not think I can just create a account and give it the password, what do I need to do so backup exec can access the drive so i can make selections and ensure a good backup.
I am a fairly new to backup exec but have a good understanding of it..just not sure how to handle this situation.
I can see the the 98 machine, but do not have the "Workstation Agent" installed..is that my problem? or am I looking at something totally different?
Alos, my boss would like to keep the drive protected with password if possible.....(i know ntfs should do it...but he is not willing to let me make the changes to use ntfs)
Any advice would be much appreciated.
