    ANOTHER VCB error

      I've got a VCB 1.1 implementation that seems to work fine when I run the vcbmounter command as the administrator user, but errors out when I run the command as my 'vcbuser' which only has the "VMware Consolidated Backup User" role. It works flawlessly if I run it as either the Administrator user, or if I add the vcbuser to the local Administrators group on the VC server. I've tried granting the vcbuser the Administrator role within VC and still get the same error.


      The command I am running on the VCB proxy looks like this




      vcbmounter -h myvcserver -u vcbuser -p password -a moref:vm-53 -r D:\test-fullVM -t fullvm




      output trimmed

      VC shows the creation of a snapshot, the removal of the snapshot, and release of the disk lease during both the successful (Administrator) and the unsuccessful (non-Administrator) cases, so those actions are successful.  The vcbuser is a domain account that is in the Administrators group on the VCB proxy.
