Backup Exec "Access is denied" for remote agent
Posted on 2009-03-30
Have BackupExec media server (12.5) intalled on Windows 2003 Server. (SERVER A)
Installed remote agent on second server - Windows 2000 SP4. (SERVER B)
When I want to connect to SERVER B in BE to select files it says "Access is denied".
Remote agent on SERVER B is set to use Local System Account. Have also tried it with Administrator and dedicated backup account - no success.
DNS resolution is fine from both sides.
Port is open and I can connect manually via telnet to port 10000 on SERVER B (the port of the remote agent).
Also when monitoring backupexec agent with ProcessExplorer I see that SERVER A is establishing a connection to remote agent on SERVER B.
Have uninstalled REmote agent and re-installed - no success.
The error is not from a specific file or folder, it is as soon as I click on the server in the selection list (i.o.w the whole server)
I can access all files and folders via windows explorer and hidden shares on SERVER B.
