Standard Credentials Failing

Post by samko » Jan 31, 2017 9:51 pm

I am having an issue with getting standard credentials to work when setting up application aware processing. Current setup: domain joined servers, including veeam server.
I am unable to get domain admin credentials to work. Here is what I have tried:

domain\domain admin account - Fails
domain\administrator - fails
localcomputer\local admin account - fails
localcomputer\administrator - success

I have verified that UAC is turned off on the servers but still not working. I really don't want to have to setup local admin accounts for all servers and then manage in veeam as well. Any thoughts of what could be causing this?

Case number: 02055653

Hi Sampson,

Double check that you domain admins were added to local admin group on this VM.

They were added. I even added to the backup users group on the servers.

Sampson,

Can you open admin share of the said VM with the domain admin account from the VBR server?

Yes. I log on with the account directly and this works. Think I may have found something, stand by

ok so the domain name when logging on to a server is actually too long so the last let is always cut off. So, when I added the account info in veeam I never removed the last letter. Just tried this and it worked for the domain account named "administrator" All test past. However the new issue, is that when I use the account I specifically created for veeam (yes its a domain admin) is not working gives me an error "could not upload file to admin share"

samko: "... the domain name when logging on to a server is actually too long so the last let[ter] is always cut off"
How long is "too long"? My domain name is 15 letters.

I have the identical situation, tried the same combinations, to no avail.
I get a warning on the Checking Standard Credentials, and failures on the two vix tests.
Win2012R2 for both the backup and target (SQL) servers. ESXi 6.0 and VBR 9.5.
I also made this registry adjustment:
"For 2012/2012 R2, you must change the “EnableLUA” DWORD to 0 in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\policies\system"

Hi,
I have a similar problem as well, although I can use local admin' on Windows 2008R2sp1 and it works. My fear is that I will lose rich NTFS share rights when performing a restore. Would that be the case?
Veeam Backup & Replication 9.5.0.1038
