Good morning. Can you please be more specific? Are you referring to the Commvault Admin account or are you referring to a Service Account for a specific agent being used to protect an application or file system?
We have a "backupuser" user in Windows AD for backups .
So this is a service account
I want to learn about what permisson should we give to this “bakcupuser” account on the server
Burak, it depends on which application this user will perform backup operations. For example: if you're going to use this user to connect to VMware vCenter to backup VMs, that user needs specific permissions on the VMware environment.
