ExitCode: 50 When Importing configuration.xml

Post by justwantagoodbackup » Aug 30, 2019 4:19 pm


Just running through a script to import the Veeam configuration xml and I'm getting an ExitCode: 50 when it attempts to.

The wording is:
Invalid job configuration: Logon failure: the user has not been granted the requested logon type at this computer. Failed to create or open file
I exported the xml from an account with a Workstation license, and I successfully imported it immediately before importing the xml. I exported it from the same account as was logged in when trying to import (though I was using a .bat file through SCCM).

The xml doesn't have any user info in it. The SMB backup share is wide-open, and Everyone has access to it.

The xml only has the 1 job - a Volume-Level Backup, and it does import if I'm using the Free version. The issue is that trying to install Veeam Agent silently and trying to kick off a Volume-Level Backup is not possible on the Free version, since after you install the software, you need to open the app to import the license. I can then manually import the xml and it works (on the Free version).

Thank you

Hi justwantagoodbackup,

Can you please clarify if the license has been installed prior running the import command? Configuration API works only after license has been installed to the product. Thanks!
