Powershell with viewer-role fails

Veeam Logoby cdesch » Tue Jul 12, 2016 1:48 pm


the PowerShell Snap-in (v9) can only be started/installed, if the user has Admin-Role within Veeam ? Why ?
I need only "Get-VBR-Commands" , and i want to use a Veeam-Viewer-Role User ?

Has anybody an idea ? We do not want to give the monitoring userr who's running the powershell scripts Admin-Role-Permissions within B&R Gui.

Thx, Chris

Hi Chris,

The majority of available PS cmdlets require admin account, cause they perform management actions on the backup server. That's why role verification is performed right in the beginning, when you load the snap-in. Currently, granular permissions for each cmdlet are not available, but thanks for the feedback!

As a workaround you may consider using Veeam ONE that would allow read-only access to Veeam B&R server.

Hope this helps!

I just ran into the same issue.
Would be really nice if there would be an option to run Get commands without granting Admin permissions within Veeam.

And Veeam One is no option for me as it requires aid version to monitor Veeam Backup & Replication.
