what exactly the permission does Unity need to do a network Dirt Backup

I am working on a Unified Message project, customer are very security conscious, I am planing to use the unityadmin to do the scheduled network backup, someone from Server group set up the R/write permission for my account, but the scheduled back never successed? to make it work, I need to give the people from other group exactly what kind of permission I need. seems like the R/W to unityadmin is not suffcient, would you help me with this? thank you very much

Re: what exactly the permission does Unity need to do a network

If you use the "Two hop" backup, this should be all that's needed. If you want to write directly in one step then the account associated with SQL will also need R/W access to that share since it's the SQL service itself creating the backup of the UnityDB and, optionally, the ReportDB backup.

I'd reccomend using the two hop backup which should leave the rights set at r/w only for the remote share.
