Hi there,

My SQLBackupAgent is not running as a local admin and I want to keep it that way. How can I grant the correct permissions to correct the error below?

Event Type: Failure Audit
Event Source: Security
Event Category: Object Access
Event ID: 560
Date: 19.12.2008
Time: 11:20:53
User: <DOMAIN>\sa3-DBSQLS01
Computer: DPFADBSQLS01
Object Open:
Object Server: SC Manager
Object Name: SQLBackupAgent

Process ID: 404
Image File Name: C:\WINDOWS\system32\services.exe
Primary User Name: DPFADBSQLS01$
Primary Domain: <DOMAIN>
Primary Logon ID: (0x0,0x3E7)
Client User Name: sa3-DBSQLS01
Client Domain: <DOMAIN>
Client Logon ID: (0x0,0x1C23D1)
Accesses: Query status of service
Start the service

Privileges: -
Restricted Sid Count: 0
Access Mask: 0x14

    The way to make this work is to grant the "Query Service" right to the SQL Backup Agent Service account for the "SQL Backup Agent" service:
    · 'Query Service' rights to the SQL Backup Agent Service (SQLBackupAgent) and the SQL Server Service (MSSQLSVC)
    · 'Start Service' rights to the SQL Backup Agent Service in cases where the service is found not to be running
    If this is necessary because of a 'locked-down' installation of Windows Server, the Security Configuration and analysis tool can be used to set the Service rights for the SQL Backup Agent startup account.
