What userid executes bp*_notify scripts on Windows 2003/2008 servers

YES_fan_-_RobD

We'll be implementing a new application which has its own special, proprietary database and database shutdown, startup, backup commands.  Part of their documentation for db backups states to create a Scheduled Task which executes one of their scripts as an Administrator-privileged account to perform backups.  From the application's documentation, the backup actually copies files to a target directory on the server for subsequent backup by a 3rd-party backup application like NetBackup.  Instead of the Windows Scheduled Task functionality, I'd like to use the bpstart_notify capabilities to control the execution of this db backup script, but, I don't know under what userid NetBackup runs the bp*notify scripts.  Might someone have an answer for this??

It depends on the privilege that NetBackup Client Service runs with. It runs with builtin Local System account by default.

Please ask your application vendor if db startup and stop script can be run by Local System, or try to change NetBackup Client Service's privilege to the user which has administrative privilege on the host.
