Various Server 2012 Backups with SQL Server 2008 failing.

Thread needs solution

I have a few servers where I get this error.  I have tried EVERYTHING I can think of in order to get this working, re-installed the VMTools, re-installed the backp agent  - nada - nothing.  On a whim, I decided to log in as the same account specified in the application-aware settings and the backup completed successfully.  I logged off of the server as that account, and the backup failed.  Any ideas as to what might be driving this?

Hi Travis,

The problem may be related to UAC settings inside the VM you're trying to back up (if user logon before backup indeed solves the problem). I'd recommended trying to turn off UAC in Windows registry (see instructions here). If this doesn't help then also try using native built-in administrator account (or native domain administrator) when enabling application-aware option. If this still doesn't help then please contact our support team for assistance with this issue.

Thank you.
