Hello everybody,

We are testing some functions from Acronis Backup 12.5, and the biggest questions we have is, How to create backup operators user?

Until this moment we have created only administrators users to access acronis web console and it is running well, but now we want to create users to access Acronis web console just to run backups and not change settings, is it possible in Acronis 12.5?

When I create an user and add him on Backup Operators group I got some erros messages in attachment.

Thanks For Help

Hello Lucas!

The user in the screenshot is probably not part of the "Acronis Centralized Admins" group. From the user guide: "Any account that is able to sign in to the backup console is a management server administrator."

I don't think acronis has this kind of find grained permission control you are looking for. Though you can create unit administrators, but they can still modify the settings related to their own unit.

What is your usecase that you need to people to manually run backups? Perhaps there is another way to achive your goal.

Hello Lucas,

welcome to Acronis forums!

Any local or domain user or user group can be added to the Unit Administrators group. These users could have Backup operator's rights in Windows but should be added as Administrators in the respective Organization Unit: https://www.acronis.com/en-us/support/documentation/AcronisBackup_12.5/index.html#39120.html
