About SAP Agent security and privileges

Since BACKINT functions as a client to the Backup Exec server, all Microsoft Windows security limitations that apply to the Backup Exec administration console also apply to BACKINT.

You must have the appropriate privileges on both the SAP and Backup Exec media servers to be able to back up and restore data.

The Backup Exec service account must have the following:

  • Access to selections in the jobs that are submitted by the BACKINT interface.

  • Rights to the volumes on which the selections are contained.
