Full VM Restore fails

Post by MJeB » Jun 06, 2019 11:46 am

Hello,

we encountered an Issue with the "restore entire VM..." functionality.
Each time we try to restore an VM from backup or copy to a different location (same host, same datastore but new vm name) the user we created in vcenter for veeam manages to create new vm folder and .vmxf, .vmx, .vmsd and .nvram in it. But as veeam tries to create the .vmdk files the restore fails with the message "failed to set storage profile <xxx> to vm ..."
What exact rights (roles) do the veeam account need to set the storage profile?

Thanks and best regards

Thank you for the link.
We found a discrepancy between your list and our rights (roles).
After correcting these discrepancy all is working fine now.
