As a rule, when a Veeam Availability Console management agent is deployed, it is configured to use a Company Owner account to connect to Veeam Availability Console. However, management agents that run together with Veeam backup agents can connect to Veeam Availability Console under a subtenant account, instead of the Company Owner account.
You can modify an account under which a management agent connects to Veeam Availability Console.
- If an agent uses a Company Owner account, you may need to change it to a subtenant account.
- If an agent uses a subtenant account, you can change it to the company Owner account.
To perform this task, a user must have one of the following roles assigned: Service Provider Global Administrator, Service Provider Administrator, Service Provider Operator.
