I have an SQL Server 2016 AlwaysOn Cluster.
NMM 9.0.1 is installed.
Server is 22.214.171.124
I have the dummy clients setup. I have the cluster listener setup. I have tried putting in for the backup command
nsrsqlsv.exe -A server.fqdn
If I specify remote user as domain\\user I get permission denied. If I specify user as domain\user or domain@user or user it fails saying "invalid SQL virtual server name server.fqdn" and "Invalid option -A". The user is dbo for all databases.
The group is not set for snapshots.
What am I missing?
have you tried to configure the client ressource with the wizard?
I don't know if -A is necessary when doing a federated backup.
Does the users (nmmuser+ NTAUTHORITY\SYSTEM) have dbcreator, public and sysadmin permissions in SQL?
Is the NMM user in the local admin and backup operators group?
I added those permissions. Removed the -A (the documentation is confusing as it is specified for the cluster backup, but not for the federated, although it is mentioned... Basically looks like a bad cut and paste job). The wizard would fail, which was not surprising as the documentation said I needed to do so manually when using NMM9 with server 8.2.3. I then down graded the NMM to 8.2.3, along with the client software. Server remains at 8.2.3.
I'm not a bit further, however the error I get now is "Usupported saveset specified". I am trying to backup "MSSQL#sql-ag1". This _seems_ to be appropriate according to documentation for nmm 8.2 SP sql VDI users's guide.
I use NMM 8.2.x for it. I create cluster client and in backup command I only use -c <client name>. SSID points to AoAG name and that works.
"Usupported saveset specified" is something, if I recall correctly, which is even documented and has to do with how you called your client (hostname vs FQDN). I believe I had the same and had to use short name instead.
