Must have the operate networker privilege???

Jump to solution

Hi

I am trying to do a restore of an exchange database but I am getting "must have the operate networker or recover local data privilege for the client".

I have *@* in the remote tab  + username @client

the user logged in is a domain user can someone help me - I think this user needs to be added to the networker admin group but I do not have any idea how to do this

even though it is a domain account will username@client suffice ?

many thanks

john

Use 'nsraddadmin' command to add the user to NetWorker server administrator group.

syntax : nsraddadmin -u user@client

Hello johnrio1

This means that inside NetWorker, that user do NOT have the "Operate NetWorker" privilege, and in the documentation it is explained.

So, in order to do that you would need to go to NMC (NetWorker Management Console), and add the user (the same user you have configured as logon in the Exchange server, for the Replication Manager Exchange Interface service) to the following NetWorker groups:

Database administrator

Application Administration

Backup Operators

Enough by adding *@hostname  of all Exchange nodes, including the DAG

That should be enough for you to perform the restore.

Thank you,

Carlos
