The following change had to be made to allow remote administration
of the Seagate Backup Exec. In other words, to allow a remote
workstation to control backups and restores.
After installing the client software for Backup Exec 7.2 on another
workstation on the LAN, we were obtaining the following error:
Password Database Error: Open Failed
Following instructions of TechNote 191573 from veritas.com, the
change was made:
1. The user FSB_BACKUP, who is the one that launches the
Backup Exec services on SFNT01, was made a part of the Domain Admins
****NOTE: if your server processes are launched
by "System", you do not need to do this
2. Using REGEDT32.exe, the following key was opened:
3. Click on Security | Permissions on the menu
4. Add Domain Admins and specify Full Control
5. User FSB_BACKUP (or whoever launches the backup services)
is added to Domain Admins.
5. Logged off as Administrator from SFNT01, and logged back in.
Now the client software on a remote workstation works as expected.
If the client asks for a user name and password, provide the following:
User Name: FSB_BACKUP
Password: (the password for that user)
Domain: (whatever domain the backup server is in)
