I was getting error such as: E000810C, E000FE36, and others that I don't remember.
I googled something and it suggested changing that account password. I decided I was going to create a new user account and just start from scratch.
I found this article.
How to change the user name or password of the Backup Exec Services Account in Backup Exec.
So I did that and it broke some things. So I kept looking. I found this.
Requirements for the Backup Exec Service Account (BESA)
It had some interesting things that I have never seen before or have been told by symantec. They were:
The Backup Exec Service Account (BESA) requires the following User Rights in group policy and group memberships:
- User rights requirements:
- Act as a part of Operating System ( Only for Windows Server 2000 ).
- Create a token object.
- Log on as a service.
- Logon as a batch job.
- Manage auditing and security log.
- Backup files and directories.
- Restore files and directories.
- Group Memberships or equivalent access:
- Domain Admins or Administrators.
- Backup Operators.
Refreshes local and Active Directory-based Group Policy settings, including security settings by executing "gpupdate" command.
I ran the "Test Run" option on the job and it ran with no errors and actually completed in a crazy fast amount of time (25 and 36 seconds). I guess the true test will be if this completes the full backup job scheduled to run in two days. I don't think I have ever had a full backup work unless I started it and deleted all the previous saved data. I don't have my hopes up but we'll see.
