access denied on Backup Exec 2010 while trying to backup system state
Posted on 2011-10-28
I have a problem with backing up system state only, the server is SBS 2003 using backup exec 2010.
the problem started occurring after updating backup exec to V12 1364 service pack 5.
I get the job log error as follows:
To back up or restore System State, administrator privileges are required.
Final error category: Security Errors
For additional information regarding this error refer to link V-79-57344-65149
the above link did not help, I am using user administrator and double checked all backup exec services are set to use administrator user too.
also I tried re-registering vss writers but that didn't help.
thank you -
