Log on Impersonation and Integrated Security

Modified on Wed, 27 Sep 2023 at 09:45 AM

When the DS Client is installed and deployed on the Windows platform, it uses the Log on Impersonation feature. This feature allows DS Client to perform backup/restore activities under the security context of that particular user account. Several such activities can be performed simultaneously, each under a different (or the same) user account, connecting to a different (or the same) network resource. This feature is especially valuable (and sometimes even essential) when connecting to resources on a Microsoft Windows Network.

Connecting to resources on a Microsoft Windows network

When supplying credentials to a resource on a Microsoft Windows network, the 'from' value determines if the user account should be authenticated (if the 'from' value is not <None>) or if a simple connection to the network resource should be made with the supplied credentials.
