Hi there,
I have a question, how we can allow Veritas bakup exec to backup a roaming profile for a user, as you know each user gets exclusive access to his romaing profile so is there is any method to configure it to be backed up.

Does the folders inquestion have exclusive access to the user or does the administrator/domain admins have access as well?  Because you can just give the service access to the domain admin group to run the backup.  If the folder does not give access to the domain/admin account just go to the parent folder give the group/user account full control and have the child folders inherit the settings.

In the GPO

Computer Configuration>Administrative Templates>System>User Profiles>Add the Administrators security group  to roaming user profiles


Enable this and make sure your service account for backup exec is a member of the administrators group, which it should already be.

In addition to "bhnmi"s response you can use the AOFO (Advance Open File Option" to backup the open files which uses might have since they are using the roaming profile. Use the AOFO on the server hosting the roaming profile and select that AOFO in the Backup Exec job to backup the open files.

Sorry guys for being late on you, I had an open case with MS team and they adviced with somewhat close solution to users, I then used Xacl to modify the current permissions on the fodlers to grant the backup account the required permissions

I've made updated my GPO to reflect bhnmi's suggestion, however the Administrator account still does not have access to existing roaming profile directories.
Does this just effect new profiles being created?
