Configuring Veeam Backup Server Roles
To perform actions on the Veeam backup servers, Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager uses one of the following accounts:
- The account specified when adding a Veeam backup server (see Adding Veeam Backup Servers).
- The account under which the Veeam Enterprise Manager Service runs, for example, if you have upgraded your Enterprise Manager (with backup servers connections preserved).
The account used to interact with the backup server must be assigned the Veeam Backup Administrator role on the backup server side. This is because on the Veeam backup server side all operations are performed by Veeam Backup Service that verifies beforehand if the account that is used to interact with the backup server has rights to accomplish the necessary actions.
Adding Enterprise Manager User to Veeam Backup Server Administrators Group
To add an Enterprise Manager user to the Administrators group on the backup server side:
- Sign in to the Veeam backup server as a user with the Veeam Backup Administrator role.
- Select Users and Roles from the main menu of Veeam Backup & Replication.
- Click Add.
- In the User or group field, specify the account that Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager will use to interact with this backup server. Enter the name of a user or group in the DOMAIN\Username format.
- From the Role list, select the Veeam Backup Administrator role.
