Upon installation, ZCB creates a new local user named amandabackup, and users are given the choice to make amandabackup a local user or a domain user.
For fine-grained access control, ZCB uses amandabackup for performing all backup related tasks.
amandabackup is used for nearly every ZCB function, including:
ZCB creates amandabackup with administrator privileges, which are required for backup-related tasks.
If you intend to run ZCB in a domain environment, amandabackup should be created as a domain user during installation.
Please see How to use external or mapped network drives with ZCB, if you plan toin a Windows Domain environment.
