hi guys

I'm doing full backups of virtual machines, but they always come up with failures of sorts.
Anyway, I'd like to know if you're backing up a Vmware machine using Backup Exec, do you use the root account for the credentials? Or do you use the Domain Admin?


Thanks
Yash

Create a special backup user account with has Local Administrator role, or Domain Admin role.

It depends. If I do backup using AVVI and connected directly to ESX(i) host then I use root account. But when I make backup using AVVI but connected to vCenter server I use dedicated backup account - member of domain admins group.
