UAC disable

Post by egroeg » Sep 03, 2015 6:01 pm

Hello all.

I need to diable UAC to allow for graceful backups and prevent the VIX Error13 code:


I have made this change at the group policy level and now my UAC is disabled, but sadly my jobs continue to fail with the same error. Can you provide any guidance.

What about two other points mentioned there? The account belongs to Local Admin group, and VMware Tools work smoothly, right?

If everything is ok, kindly, open a ticket with our support team, as log investigation appears to be required.
