In this case my SamAccountName is fuser, not firstname.surname.

Anyway, if this is how Veeam has intended it to be then that's it ought to be done. However as with all things, there are two sides to a sword.
- Using computer accounts would ease the deployment to users as they do not need to fill in credentials, but it does add up in extra administration with the computer accounts.
- If having to fill credentials, end-users might miss scheduled backups if they forget to update their passwords (as said there no Windows notifications from the client). However it eases administration when closing user account -> backups stop automatically as well.
I thank you foggy for answering my questions and ought to be out of your way soon enough
