Always remember to DISABLE UAC (User Access Control) while installing Netbackup Server or Client on any Windows 2008 R2 Machine

As its mentioned in Netbackup Windows Admin Guide: 

                                                                     Note: To install NetBackup on Windows 2008/Vista and

Windows 2008 R2/Windows 7 UAC-enabled environments,

you must log on as the official administrator. Users that are

assigned to the Administrators Group and are not the official

administrator cannot install NetBackup in UAC-enabled

environments. To allow users in the Administrators Group

to install NetBackup, disable UAC.

How to disable UAC ?


1. Start

2.Control Panel

3.User Accounts

4.Change User Account Control Settings

5.Never Notify
