File recovery premissions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, I was wondering is there any way to control who has access to file backups. Right now when a client wants to restore a file they have to log into the server using the server admin password, and then they can choose which computer to open the backup log for. Is there any way to make it so that only the computer from which you're accessing the console from is the computer you're opening the console from. And is there a way to set a different password so that all the clients don't have the administrator password? Thanks.

  • Restoring a file, or an entire computer, is regarded as a "server administrator" function, so a user who is doing this needs the password for the console. There's no way to change this.
