Veeam Quiesce Best Practices

Post by BigWheel »


I am excited to say I just purchased Veeam due to its awesomeness in VMware's environment. My only concern/question is, when going through the Add Backup Job wizard, I would like to Quiesce my OS to help ensure a "clean" backup, but since I am on a domain, I really don't want to run the backup job as a Domain Admin. Do you have any recommendations on how to run the backup jobs with a deprivileged user account?

If you’re talking about application-aware image processing, please be aware that for its proper work you should specify the account with the local administrator privileges. And there is no way to utilize such an option with less privileged account.

Hope this helps.
