Changing and testing resource credentials for restore jobs

If the logon account needed to restore data is different from the default logon account, you can change the account through the Resource Credentials dialog box. You can also use this dialog box to overwrite logon accounts for redirected restores. You can also verify that a logon account can access a resource.

To change and test resource credentials for restore jobs

  1. On the navigation bar, click the arrow next to Restore.

  2. Click New Restore Job.

  3. Select the data you want to restore.

  4. On the Properties pane, under Source, click Resource Credentials.

  5. Select the resource whose logon account you want to edit.

  6. Click Change.

  7. Select the logon account you want to use for this selection, or click New and create a new logon account.

    See Creating a Backup Exec logon account.

  8. To verify that the logon account you are using can access the resources selected for restore, click Test All.

    While Backup Exec attempts to connect to the resources, "Testing" displays in the Test Results column. After a test has completed, the Test Results column will display one of the following results: Successful, Not tested, or an error message. The Not Tested result indicates that either the logon accounts have not been tested or that the tests have been performed but the server that contains the selection could not be accessed

    Some tests may take a long time to complete. To cancel a logon account test, click Cancel Test.

  9. Click OK.
