Installing the Backup Service manually

When you add a farm to your Metalogix Backup for SharePoint installation, the Configuration wizard lets you install a copy of the Backup Service on the SharePoint Web front end (WFE) servers and database servers.

If your disaster recovery planning includes farm backups of SharePoint 2010 farms, you must install the Backup Service on every WFE and every database server in your SharePoint farm.

When you use the Configuration wizard, you must install the Backup Service on at least one WFE.

info

NOTE: The first Backup Service that you install must always be on a WFE server.

You should normally use the Configuration wizard to install the Backup Service on every WFE and every database server in your SharePoint farm.

You can also use the Management Console to install the Backup Service on WFE hosts in the SharePoint farm. In addition, if you add a WFE or a database server to your farm, you can use the Management Console to install the Backup Service on the new server.

Finally, you can use the Metalogix Backup for SharePoint installer to install the Backup Service on the WFE or database server directly. To do so you must be able to log in to the server with an account that is a member of the administrators group on the server.

When you install a Backup Service, you select the WFE server or database server to install on. You also specify the user name and password that the Backup Service uses to run. The user account that you specify must have specific permissions for the farm. For more information about the permissions that the Backup Service user account requires, see the section titled Backup Service Requirements.

Backup Service Permission requirements

The account you use as the service account for the Backup Service must have the following permissions:  

·Member of the local administrators group on the WFE host.

·Member of the farm administrators group in the SharePoint farm.

·Must have at least db_owner permissions for all SharePoint content databases, including the admin content and SharePoint config databases.

info

NOTE: If the account that you use is not a SQL Server system administrator, you should use the SQL Server Management Studio to grant the account access to the repository database that you specified when you installed Metalogix Backup for SharePoint. The default database name is Metalogix_BackupRepository.
