Rotating Veeam Service account password?

Post by ammayer » Jun 30, 2017 3:53 pm

I've got a handful of Veeam Agents out backing up to repository. If I want to change the password for the service account that Veeam uses to access the backup repository do I essentially need to change the password manually on each Veeam Agent?

Hi Alan,

Yes. However instead of creating a user account for every agent you can use computer account to authenticate. This won’t require you changing passwords and still providers granular access to your repository.
