Configuring the logon account for the NetBackup Client Service for NetBackup for DB2
Because the NetBackup Client Service is started by default under the SYSTEM account, you also must give special attention to database user authentication. The SYSTEM account does not have permission to connect to the target database if you use OS authentication instead of passwords.
If you use OS authentication, run the NetBackup Client Service under an account that has SYSADM, SYSCTRL, or SYSMAINT privileges for DB2. The account name must comply with the DB2 naming rules.
For more information on naming rules and authentication, see your DB2 documentation.
To configure the logon account for the NetBackup Client Service for NetBackup for DB2
- Open the Windows Services application.
- Double-click on the NetBackup Client Service entry.
- Click on the Log On tab.
- Provide the account name that has SYSADM, SYSCTRL, or SYSMAINT privileges.
- Type the password.
- Click OK.
- Stop and start the NetBackup Client Service.
