Guest OS Credential problem - Workgroup

Post by zaiga » Feb 11, 2019 11:54 pm

Hi,
I am trying to set up a new job for a Windows 10 VM running on a Hyper V Core.
I am using the following: Hostname\User (In my case: testcomputer\user1)
But it simply doesn't want to connect during the "Test now" sequence.

I can access from another server to shared folders on the Windows 10 VM.

Although I have a feeling that something needs to be changed on Windows 10 to allow the access ?

Greetings!

Hello,
testcomputer\user1
is that user an administrator? As an alternative, did you try to enable and use testcomputer\administrator?

Best regards,
Hannes

Hi,
thank you for the answer!

I am not that experienced with windows, what do you mean exactly by "enabling" administrator in windows?


Thank you!

Hello,
the administrator account is disabled per default since some versions of windows. you can enable it in the computer management (right click on windows button)

I ask the other way round: what's the purpose of testing the credentials?


Best regards,
Hannes

Thank you for the answer! It worked (partly) after the activation.
1.Whats wrong with the main account for Veeam? (Both Accounts are part of the Administrator Group)
2.But I still get the following errors:

The purpose is that I would like to backup a SQL Server running in a VM later. And I am testing Veeam right now.

Hello,
RPC is good, it should be used always in "normal" environments. Yes, for SQL logshipping & restore it is important.

As you mentioned you are not too deep into Windows, I suggest to leave the PowerShell direct part as it is. It's just a fallback that should never be used anyway in "normal" environments.

Best regards,
Hannes

Thank you for the answer, I meant that I mostly work with Linux systems.

1. Whats wrong with the main account in contrast to the Administrator Account?
2. I was reading that RPC is "enough" but Veeam doesn't produce a Backup then, it stops with an Error and says that powershell doesn't work.

I guessed something like that - I had several customers with similar background :-)

@1: to be honest, I don't know. It was just a guess - normally I don't see people running Windows10 as servers and I just guessed it because that was the main difference between server and client OS I saw

@2: that's strange. RPC is the first way per default and only if it fails, then it tries powershell. To answer the question why the job fails, I can only suggest to open a case. Please post the case number here.
