As per the KB "https://www.veritas.com/support/en_US/article.100017184.html", the service account that is used with netbackup on client machines maust be member of local Administrator group. But for security reasons it's not allowed to be a member of local Admin group. As per the forum "https://vox.veritas.com/t5/NetBackup/NetBackup-Service-Account-requirements/td-p/625893" we provided below permissions
- Replace a process level token, - Logon as a service, - Create a token object, Allow logon locally, Backup Files & Directories, Restore Files & Directories,Logon as Batch Job, Take Ownership of Files & directories
But still if we remove the service account from local adminsitrators group the services "NetBackup Client Service, NetBackup Legacy Client Service, NetBackup Legacy Network Service" are failed to start / run.
We are looking for the permissions to be provided for these service accounts other than local Admin membership
Thanks in advance

Any Update please? Even the services like "NetBackup Client services" are not comming up with service account if it's not member of local Admin group

If the documentation says "the service account that is used with NetBackup on client machines must be member of local Administrator group", then I would assume that the documentation is correct.

maybe just permission to write log directories is missing - doublecheck that the account can write to %netbackup%\logs subdirectories.
But take another point of view - backups and especially restores are one of the most powerful activities on any system. No wonder that the appropriate account must have maximum rights.
