Backup VMware Server
I am trying to backup a VMware server that is not a domain member. In the backup job I created the VMwareserver\Administrator as the logon account. When I test the logon credentials it is successful I have given logon account the following rights on the VM I am trying to backup:
Act as part of the operating system
Backup files and directories
Create a token object
Logon as a batch job (Windows 2008 only)
Logon as a service
Manage auditing and security log
Restore files and directories
Take ownership of files and other objects
The backup job fails with the error "The logon account that was provided does not have valid credentials. Ensure that the user name and password are correct, and then try again."
I am able to backup VMware servers that are domain members without issue.
