Requested registry access is not allowed

Post by masonit »

Hi

After uppgrading from Veeam 7 to 8 I get this error when running Veeam commands (requested registry access is not allowed). I am logged in on the vbr server with a domain account that is part of the local administrator group. Other powershell commands work fine but not Veeam commands. If I choose to start powershell as administrator or if I starts powershell from vbr console then it works fine. But that is not always possible... It worked in veeam 7 so something has changed. Powershell is version 4.

Any update on this? Having the issue on a new 2012 R2 VM. Works when launched from Veeam, but NOT when run as Admin or otherwise.

Ethan, John,

May I ask you to describe the issue in more details? Are those scripts specified as pre-,post job commands, or as pre-freeze, post-thaw VM commands? What permissions does the Veeam service account have? You're saying that the only way to make the scripts work is to run them from VB&R?

Thanks.

Does this issue get resolved ? Running into the same issue. It works for adding a VM to a job and remove a VM from job. It fails for Get-VBRBackup command.

Kindly, avoid posting the same question in the multiple discussions for the purpose of convenience.

In most case the root cause of the experienced issue is the given account lacking required permissions. What happens if you try to run the script manually, using Administrator account, or use the self-elevated approach mentioned above?

Thanks.

Edit the permissions on the following registry key:
HKLM\Software\Veeam
Grant "Full Control" to "Users" and you will have your scripts running without issue (without running as admin.)

I had the same issues with a script I run via scheduled task to get the # of free tapes in my autoloader.
For some unknown reason, the Veeam snap-in needs to write to some key in this location. (Even if you are only running "Get" or "Find" cmdlets)

[MERGED] After the Update

Post by cesarniemeyer »

After the VeeamBackup & Replication_9.5.0.1536.Update3 update, my scripts stopped working, displaying the following error:
Connect-VBRServer: Access to the registry key 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \ SOFTWARE \ Veeam \ Veeam Backup Replication'is denied

What can I do to resolve this issue?

Thank you so much

I reinstalled the software
The problem persists, when I run the script through powershell the following error occurs:
Start-VBRZip: Access denied
at C: \ Backups \ microcpd.ps1: 36 char: 1
...
What can I do, I already gave permission in regedit

Still looks like permission issue to me; what happens if you execute script you try to run under Administrator account or use the self-elevated approach above?

If nothing helps, kindly, reach our support team and ask for assistance.

Thanks.

[MERGED] Access to registry key is denied

Post by very_best »

Hello!

I want to start a VeeamZIP with powershell.
But I get the Error:

Code: Select all

Get-VBRServer : Access to the registry key 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication' is denied.
At C:\bat\Start_VeeamZIP.ps1:125 char:17
+     $VCServer = Get-VBRServer -name $VCenter -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue -Erro ...
+                 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (:) [], UnauthorizedAccessException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : System.UnauthorizedAccessException

If I start it with runas Administrator I have no problem.
Also when I start the Veeam-PS-Console I have no problem.

What can I do, that I can start my script without error?

I had this issue with Veeam 11 after changing the account used to connect to the DB by running "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Veeam\Backup and Replication\DBConfig\Veeam.Backup.DBConfig.exe"
After that I was getting as error when opening the console "Unable to upgrade plug-ins under the current user. Please open the console under an account with local administrator privileges" but the account I was using was local admin... I rebooted and still issue remained... I checked event logs and found the error
"
Alternative log directory setting error :
System.UnauthorizedAccessException: Access to the registry key 'HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Veeam\Veeam Backup and Replication' is denied.
at Microsoft.Win32.RegistryKey.Win32Error(Int32 errorCode, String str)
.... this goes on a bit ...
"

After finding this forum post I confirmed UAC was disabled, enabling UAC back to the default level via msconfig.exe resolved the issue, no reboot required.

Thanks @very_best !
