Backup Exec, Access denied errors.

I have a win 2003 server with BackupExec.
The server currently backs up Windows XP clients with no problem using an account specifically created for that purpose.

When we try to use the same account to backup a Windows 7 client, we recieve an "Access Denied" error.

The backup of the Win7 client works just fine if we use the domain administrators account.

The backup account is in the same groups as the admin account, and has the same security settings.

They have been duplicated in every detail, execpt the backup account can not access a win 7 client while the admin account can.

Any suggestions?

Maybe your GPO's have remved UAC prompt for domain admins, but not for regular admin accounts? in anyway, your backup account wont have admin permissions untill UAC is either disabled or interacted with one way or the other.

Try turning off Windows Firewall temporarily and see if that allows access for the backup account.
