Re: Feature request - Managed Service Accounts. MSA and GMSA

Post by Jim_eHealth » Jan 28, 2020 9:57 pm

I am shocked that Veeam - being an enterprise BCDR solution, does not support GMSA's. I can't believe this. This is absolutely critical that this be implemented ASAP. Any environment that cares at all about security will require password expiration on all domain accounts. We will be forced to find a new BCDR solution for hundreds of VM's if this is not implemented very soon, this is a critical security flaw as far as we are concerned.

Hello,
and welcome to the forums. Yes, it's something we want to do (the request comes up more and more often, also internally). But I cannot give you a timeline yet.

Best regards,
Hannes

Lol, the amusing part is that this thread been open since 2015 and the veeam support keep saying they either looking into it or working on it. Take your time guys, what's another 5 years...

Hello Yismail,

Keep in mind we have to decide between many hundreds (literally) of pending feature requests for each version. And from more than 365.000 Veeam customers customers, there is only a few who will be using this feature... so choosing other features over this one for many years makes sense for the majority of our customers.

Best regards,
Hannes

Hello Hannah,
The thing is this not a feature, this a huge security concern to your clients who are concerned about security in an age where service accounts targetd to compromise organization. Anyways it doesn't really matter, you do you guys.

I have the request to implement gMSA to get my company covered for a cyber risk insurance.
Leading vm backup solution provider veeam, does not support it. So sad. Time to evaluate alternatives.
