Reading Time: 2 minutes When you add a Veeam proxy to the Veeam Backup infrastructure, in some cases you can have an error message like this: “Failed to create persistent connection to ADMIN$” And the proxy is not added to the infrastructure. There can be different reason, but the most common case occour when you have proxyes that are “workgroup only” and when you are using dedicated local accounts, and not the “Administrator” one. And you have Windows Server 2012 or later.
