Windows Home Server 2011 - Unable to schedule server backup


  • During initial installation I was able to schedule a backup to a USB hard drive.

    Once I started to backup the computers on my home network to the Windows Home Server 2011, the existing USB hard drive was insufficient.

    I created a share on my NAS for the backups. When trying to schedule backups to the NAS I am prompted to enter credentials.

    I enter a username and password and they are accepted.

    When completing the wizard I receive the following error.

    "You must be a member of the local Administrators or Backup Operators groups to scheduled a backup."

    I added the servers local Administrator account to Backup Operators and I still receive the same error.

    I am able to run a one time backup of the server successfully but I still cannot Create a backup schedule for the server.
