[Feature Request] Disable "Backup Now" button policy

Post by zx.savage » Sep 17, 2018 5:00 am 1 person likes this post

I would like to see options in agent policy:
- disable "Backup Now" button
- not show Agent in tray
- permit to launch agent
with option to launch agent without that restrictions (admins local group for example).

Hello zx.savage.

Thanks for your request. Frankly speaking you want to disable/hide all user interactions with Veeam Agent for Windows and let only backup admin control it?

Same here. Normal users should not be allowed to do anything - simple as that.

HW_HW,

How you are managing your backup agents? Have you tried enabling ReadOnly mode via Configuration API in case of standalone deployment? Cheers!

Sorry, I cannot answer your question. We just began testing with Veeam. Productive usage will begin within in the next months.

We are managing agents by backup policy ("Managed by agent" job mode) in B&R.

Dmitriy,

In managed by agent job type agent operate in ReadOnly mode as well. Users, however, can start file level recovery (only if they are local admins of the machine) and perform Backup Now thru the Control Panel. Last option provides ability to perform an incremental backup when it's required (if you want to protect critical data at this specific point in time). Would you like to disable Backup Now option for your users? Thanks!
