Granting Permissions to Users

To add a user to the veeam group, use the following command:

dseditgroup -o edit -a <username> veeam


<username> — name of the account to which you want to grant access to Veeam Agent.

For example:

user@wrk001 ~ % dseditgroup -o edit -a user veeam


To check whether the user is added to the veeam group, you can use the following command:


For example:

user@wrk001 ~ % groups
staff adm everyone dip plugdev lpadmin veeam
