Veeam service account login errors on vCenter - all works

Post by BLWL » Feb 01, 2017 8:34 am

Hi all,

VBR 9.5 Update 1
vCenter Appliance 6.0 Update 2

We have ~20 jobs that runs fine every night. But also, every night VMware LogInsight picks up failed logins for the Veeam service account.

Code: Select all

vcsa.domain.local vcenter-server: Cannot login domain\veeam-serviceaccount@192.168.1.10
Account have never got locked out. No warnings or alerts from Veeam, just this for vCenter. It seems to appeared after upgrading from ver 8 -> 9.5. Updating to Update 1 did not affect anything.

Since everything is working, no case have been opened - just curious. Anyone seen this?

Thanks

Hi Bjorn,

Just a wild guess: does Veeam account has full admin privileges on the vCenter Server or you're using an account with granular permissions?

Thanks!

Hi DGrinev!

It has administrator role. Can't remember why though.

Thanks
