How to dismiss an Agent-Tray-Nofication without admin rights

Post by einhirn » Sep 26, 2017 7:41 am


since updating to Veeam Agent for Windows, I have to start the Tray-App as Admin to dismiss notifications like "skipped backup, battery low"... How can I revert to previous behavior, being able to dismiss a notification as regular user?

Hello einhirn,

Unfortunately, all operations require elevated permissions. This was changed in security purposes (to avoid non admin users change options or run backup jobs).
