FWIW, we are ADSM V2, running Win32 client at
We also tried and couldn't get the scheduler service to work with
anything but the System account.

        We are running ADSM V3.1.0.1 (client and server)  on Windows NT
V4 servers.

        I have a couple of queries regarding the scheduler service:-

        Firstly, I can not get the scheduler service to work when it is
run under a service account (i.e. NOT the System Account).  Although I
give this account full administrative rights it fails to back up every
SINGLE file (although it does back up the registry!).  The errors in the
dsmerror.log file (for each file) are:-

        ANS1228E Sending of object '<<filename>>' failed
        ANS1087E Access to the specified file or directory is denied
        ANS4007E Error processing '<<filename>>' : access to the object
is denied
        TRANSWin32RC( ): Win32 RC 1314 from NTSecurityRead( ):
getSecurityDescriptor( ) for SACL SD

        More curiously however is if I schedule a command to run on the
client (as opposed to a normal incremental backup) then it all seems to
work quite happily.

        Secondly, scheduling a command on the client does NOT produce
error message entries in the NT event application logs but scheduling a
normal incremental backup does.

        Has anybody else come across either of these anomalies and
particularly in the first case, has anybody got the service account to
work with the scheduler (maybe I am missing some privileges, rights
