micrsoft back up

By mjkqb ·
Trying to schedule automatic backups for a domain user. When setting up the task you are asked for a runas user and password. To get it to work I entered user's net password. The problem is, when the password expires and is changed, the task will no longer run unless the password within the task is changed to match.

I've tried entering a domain user's name (with admin rights) in the runas line, but the setting never seems to hold. It always reverts back to the current user's name once you click OK.

create a user on the domain for backup purposes only with backup operator rights. The account should never expire with a password and shuold have local admin rights to the machine you are running the backup from.
Log on to the computer with the backup account and create your schedule and backup scheme. this will insure that the backup is going to use the logged on account and will not have any reprocussions of user conflicts or password changes.
