Obviously this leads to an error message of "Account does not exist".

foggy wrote:In this case it connects to Veeam B&R using computer account of the server where Veeam Endpoint is installed, so user credentials do not play any role here. If you give the group containing all accounts of Endpoint computers permissions to repository, you will be able to connect without specifying credentials.
IcyAero wrote:My understanding is also that VBR requires the format to be DOMAIN\username. This works like intended when adding Security Groups or Computer objects to the list but not for individual Users. With individual users, VBR formats the name into DOMAIN\firstname.surname instead of DOMAIN\user with mail enabled user accounts. This does not happen when adding a service-kind user account.
IcyAero wrote:Also when changing account passwords, users most often forget to change them to other applications unless prompted for it - which at this time the Endpoint Backup does not do.
foggy wrote:Actually the required format is DOMAIN\<samAccountname>, while some of the accounts can have samAccountname = firstname.surname and others samAccountname = fsurname (or anything else).
