In this article

    The account used to connect Veeam Backup & Replication or Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager servers must:

    • Have the Veeam Backup Administrator role assigned.

    This role must be assigned to the account on the machine that run Veeam Backup & Replication. If you connect Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager, the account must have this role assigned on all underlying Veeam Backup & Replication servers.

    • Be a member of the Performance Monitor Users and Event Log Readers security groups.

    These permissions must be granted to the account on machines that run:

      • Veeam Backup & Replication
      • Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager
      • Backup proxy, backup repository (Windows-based), WAN Accelerator, tape server and cloud gateway components (required to collect performance data from these servers)
    • Have permissions to remotely access WMI.

    This includes remote access, activation and launching the DCOM application of WMI, and remote access to the root WMI namespace and sub-namespaces. For details on granting these permissions, see Configuring Permissions to Remotely Access WMI.

    This permission must be granted to the account on machines that run:

      • Veeam Backup & Replication
      • Veeam Backup Enterprise Manager
      • Backup proxy, backup repository (Windows-based), WAN Accelerator, tape server and cloud gateway components (required to collect performance data from these servers)

    Note:

    You must use the account with local Administrator permissions in the following cases:

    • If you plan to install Veeam ONE agent on Veeam Backup & Replication server
    • If machines that run Veeam ONE server and Veeam Backup & Replication server belong to different domains or workgroups.
