Access denied. Only machine administrators are allowed to create administration service job definitions:
During restoring a sharepoint backup you might get this error basically this means few things:
1. The SQL Server name specified has named instance missing (i.e. SQLSERVERNAME\NamedInstance) or
2. The account used for the restore doesn’t have sufficient rights [make sure that account used to restore has appropriate rights on the WFEs and SQL Server also, it makes life bit easy if the account also has local admin rights and farm admin rights, you can always remove the rights later].
