Guest processing

Post by badams » Jan 22, 2018 2:58 am

Hi everyone,

During the setup when I get to guest processing and credentials, I use the same credentials I have used all along. I run the test, and it fails every time. I get a warning on checking standard credentials and a red x on Connecting to Guest OS on RPC. Also, Testing Admin Share Accessibility via RPC and Cannot Connect to the Host's Administrative Share. Any thoughts?

Has anything changed for this account recently? Can you manually (not via backup console) connect to administrative share, using the given account? Thanks.

This is what I am seeing.

I used my personal, domain admin account when I first setup. Backups seem fine - no errors - but I haven't tried a restore yet (it's on the list of things to do....). Log/report says that SQL logs were truncated (which I presume is related to Application Aware processing)

But I decided to create a standalone account. So I made it a domain admin member as well (as I saw this is required for DC backups), and went to modify the 'Guest OS Credentials'. I clicked Test Now, and all of them have;
A warning next to 'Checking Standard Credentials'
A red cross next to 'Connecting to guest OS via VIX Error: Cannot upload file ...'
A red cross next to 'Testing admin share accessibility via VIX'

I tried my personal account again, and I too get the same warnings/errors.

So - the test fails, but the backups work...?


I read somewhere, to try using the standard DOMAIN\Administrator account to get around UAC. I tried this and _most_ of them now pass. Well - Windows 2012x64 and Windows 7 does. But my 2 Windows 2008R2 still fail (although these are Honeywell PCs and as part of their installation, may have extra security policies/settings enforced on them)...


Any ideas? Am I missing anything critical with these errors, but the backups are 'working'?
