I' am trying to execute a backup using OEM. Pretty straightforward stuff. Everything goes OK but on checking the backup in the 'Jobs' I find it has failed and I get this error...

'VNI-2015 : The Node preferred credentials for the target node are either invalid or do not have sufficient privileges to complete the operation.
On Windows platforms, the Node credentials specified for the Windows target should have the "Logon as a batch job" privilege.'

Pretty standard stuff I'm sure. Relates to Adminstrator passwords possibly? Anyway, if someone could offer an explanationa nd fix it would be appreciated.

The VNI-2015 error occurs when the Intelligent Agent cannot logon locally
to the Windows 2000 system.There is a privilege called....
a)Logon as a Batch Job
b)Deny Logon as a Batch Job(new to win2000) .

Check whether these two privileges are assigned to the same OS user.
If Deny Logon as a Batch Job privilege is assigned to the same user it will override the
Logon as a Batch Job privilege

hi marton

Remove the Intelligent Agent's OS user from the list of users who are
assigned the privilege "Deny Logon as a Batch Job".

try this.........

1. Click on START => Programs => Administrative Tools => Local Security Policy

in the local policies folder select the User Rights Assignment folder.
there you can see a scroll bar.scroll it down util you see
"DenyLogon as Batch Job" privilege.double click on the privilege.
you can see the list of users who are assigned this privilege.
locate win 2000 user who is specified in the Enterprise Manager Console's Preferred Credentials setting for that node.
you can see a checkbox to the right of the user name.uncheck it.
click OK to save the changes.

i hope this will resolve the problem you are facing........

hi marton,

i dought that you had'nt assigned the 'logon as a batch job ' privilege to the OS user

try setting that privilege first.....

1. go to START => Programs => Administrative Tools => Local Security Policy

2.under Local Policies on the left, select User Rights Assignment folder

3.at the right side of the window you can see a scroll bar.scroll it down to the "Logon as Batch Job" privilege and select it.

4.right-click on the "Logon as a Batch Job" privilege then Security.

5.select the Add button which evokes a Select Users/Groups box.

6.from the "Look In" field, select the local workstation/server

7.select the User that will be used as the OEM OS user.

8.select Add then OK

9.check whether the "Local Policy Setting" checkbox has been selected

10.logon to the OEM

11.click on system => Preferred Credentials

set PREFERRED CREDENTIALS for the NODE called DEFAULT.This will set the logon credentials for all discovered nodes.


set individual PREFERRED CREDENTIALS for each NODE

NB:Option B must be used if the accounts and passwords are not unique across the  servers

I think part of the problem here is I'm running 9i on XP and the set-up is slightly different. Transposing your ideas a little I can get quite a good way down your list. Re point 6 the local workstation/server is already selected but there is no "Local Policy Setting" checkbox to check.

I had a look at steps 10> OK with that. Its obviosuly something in and around step 6+ thats fouling things up for me.

Thanks for your effort on this anyway.
