A single-pass backup of an SQL instance will fail if the user does not have enough privileges to back up SQL databases


You attempt to run a single-pass backup with a user that does not have enough privileges to back up the SQL instances. You get an error similar to this:

Message: Account 'Acronis Agent User' does not have enough privileges to access instance 'ACRONIS'. To be able to backup or recover the instance, the account must have the 'sysadmin' role in it.


User which the Managed Machine Service service uses to start has no sysadmin role in the SQL server and the "Ignore application errors" checkbox is not checked.


  1. Check "Ignore application errors" checkbox. In this case the backup will not fail, but SQL contents are not backed up.
  2. Check which user MMS uses to start in Control Panel -> Administrative Tools -> Services.
    Start SQL Management studio, connect to the SQL instance in question, go to Security -> Logins.
    Either add the Managed Machine Service user to SQL logins if it does not exist or add sysadmin role to it.
