hi dear

I am using veritas 9.1 on win2k sp4 server
i have gone through few articles from veritas web site pertaining to access denied problems but noen of them made me satisfied bcoz i m sure that each and every directory has full control to back exec account and moreover backexec account is member of domain admin group and domain admin also have full control over each and every dir .

but still i get on and off the followign error msg

Backup - \\CLUSTER2-HQ\M: PRAccess denied to directory \.
Directory not found. Can not backup directory \PR and its subdirectories.

same thing for another folder also called genadmin

it was working fine for quite some time but all of sudden this starnge thing happen , i didnt change any persmission things

    In version 9.1 permissions setup in two places; Im not near my lab but, you may suffer ether an insuficiant permision getting to the agent or you may suffer comm probs somewhere...

    I'll be able to reply to you later but in the meanwhile, why dont you use Veritas Diagnostics?

    sorry for overlooking , it was missed from my mind to close this issue , may be i was over joyed bcoz my problem was solved by myself :)

    actually , the problem was related to space which required by veritas in order to take backup

    i followed veritas technote 261831

    abd problem solved , u can close this case.
