Cannot enumerate folder: File to tape

Veeam Logoby PenguinSSH » Fri Jun 12, 2015 7:38 pm

Hello all,

I'm trying to use File to Tape to backup a drive from a FileServer. Here are the steps I've taken to backup the drive but to no available.

-Add the FileServer (2012R2) as a Managed Server in the Veeam Backup Infrastructure
-Add the user managing the file server as full administrator on the fileserver.
-Created a file to tape job, select the file server and finally selected the drive.

Unfortunately, when the job starts, we receive the following error for a couple of folders with restricted access: Cannot Enumerate folder F:\Common: Access is denied.

I can't seem to fix this problem unfortunately, and it would be extremely useful to send some files directly to tape for archival purposes.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Ok so it looks like File to Tape job runs as some kind of credentials, but cannot have the Backup Operators rights to backups all files.

All services are running as local system so that should be working....

I have sometimes seen folders mysteriously lack permissions for Local System.

I recommend opening a support case and posting your case number.

Well they do indeed do not have Local System. Do you know of any quick way to add local system to all files/folders while preserving current permissions?
