I have 2 users in GP that need to be able to back up and restore within Great Plains. They have proper permissions to the SQL databases but it looks like permissions must be set for the user accounts in Great Plains as well. Is this in fact the case? Where can I change these permissions? Thanks.

Are you using the back up utility under the file menu?

Yes. We are using Back Up and Restore under the application itself. The main questions that is left is what kind of permissions are needed in order to restore from a backup? We have given the proper permissions for Backing up but restoring still fails due to lack of permissions. Thank you

As far as I know, you have to be logged into GP as 'SA' to use the restore screen.  There is no amount of security that will allow you to restore as a user in this screen.

You not only have to be logged in as 'sa' or 'DYNSA' but you also have to be on the SQL server itself to do this.  
The big difference between backups and restores in SQL are that a backup is just a snapshot in time and can be performed with users in the system.  A restore can only be performed when there is no one else in the system.
Not really best practice for a production environment to have multiple users backing up and restoring.  Why is this needed?
