Collection Job Credentials

Post by daburgett » Feb 12, 2013 2:06 pm

Good morning all,

When I first installed VeeamOne, I used my admin account to run the collection job, and it was working great. Now, I'm trying to change the collection job credentials to use a service account, which has the exact same rights as my admin account. However, I get the following error when trying to update the credentials - failed to login to "vcenter" by SOAP, port 443, user "account", proxy srv: port:0. Permission to perform this operation was denied.

I'm sure I'm overlooking some minor detail, so if anyone has seen this before and can lead me in the right direction, I would greatly appreciate it.

Hi David,

Can you please confirm that you're able to use these credentials when connecting to vCenter Server via vSphere Client from this machine?

Thanks!

No, it tells me I don't have permission to login, however the service account I'm attempting to use is a domain admin and also an admin on the vCenter server.

I figured out the issue...the service account was not a member of the VMware admins group, which it needed to be. Thanks for your help!
