Backup Operators group - access to c$

rich2778

I'm trying to setup Commvault to backup CIFS shares on a FAS cluster.

 

I have a File System iDA with a subclient pointing to \\NetApp\c$

 

If I add a domain account to the "Backup Operators" group on the NetApp and use that account in Commvault to "Connect As" on the subclient the backup doesn't work, I simply get "Access Denies" in the Commvault logs.

 

If I add the domain account to the "Administrators" group on the NetApp the backup works.

 

I understood that "Backup Operators" can bypass NTFS and  Share permissions to backup files.

 

Am I missing something in the NetApp implementation of this, or am I most likely doing something wrong with how I have the Commvault subclient configured?

 

Setting it to use the C$ share seems the simplest way to do this but I'm still new to NetApp and couldn't find much guidance on whether there's another recommended way.

Add the following privileges to the Backup Operators group and it should work:

SeBackupPrivilege

SeChangeNotifyPriviliege

SeRestorePrivilege

SeTakeOwnershipPrivilege

SeTcbPrivilege

 

We're doing a POC of Komprise' file archiving solution and ran into the same issue, but these took care of it.
