To back up CIFS shares on a NetApp filer from a Windows host, I believe
that I need to have Domain Admin permission.

I am being told that if I can browse and access the files on the share with
the backup logon, that is enough.

I have two client servers in different locations.  I am using one logon for
both of them, but one client is in a different domain.

I can (more or less) backup  the files in the Prod domain (it takes 8
days…), but I get the error that a required NT Permission is not held for
all of the directories on the client in the DR domain.

The CIFS shares are in the dsm.opt as domains.

I can map to them in the <Start>, <Run>, <\\filername\cifs_Share_name >
fashion from the logon profile that I use for all the other backups.  I can
browse files and access them.

But just because I can browse and access does not mean I can back them up,
correct?  The TSM Client is only able to backup local filesystems unless it
has authority in the domain, correct?  Or not?

Correct that server is in SJ. I logged into that server with adsm and could
see the SJ filer/shares and could read/copy data from it. So if the app is
using that account to connect it doesn't make much sense that it isn't
working unless there are other requirements...I'll try and do some more
testing later today to see if I can find anything else but from my end so
far everything looks good.
