Cant access backup sets under different user in Server 2003.

level9tech used Ask the Experts™
Are backups were configured under the Administrator account, but we wish to disable that account and use another account. When we login under the new account(copied user in AD), it doesnt find the backup set. Is their a way to let this new user account easily access the backup sets? I already configured under the Administrator account to run each backup under the new account.

You can just recatalog the ntbackup files or tapes.

Otherwise, the catalogs should be located in the profile of the user who the backup job ran as.  Look in the original user account path c:\documents and settings\administrator\local settings\application data\Microsoft\Windows NT\NTBackup\data
