SBS SQL Install help for MS CRM 3.0 please!
Posted on 2006-03-31
I'm to the point where I'm installing SQL 2000 to make it ready for MS CRM 3.0 and I'm not sure abot the 'Services Accounts' form.
I'm confused by this... In the MS 'Completing Setup for Microsoft Windows Small Business Server Premium Technologies' document it says
On the Services Accounts page, you can use the default of Use a Domain User account, and then specify the password for your administrator account. Optionally, an even more secure method is to create a new account specifically for accessing SQL Server.
BUT in the CRM installation Guide says...
"The service account that SQL Server uses to log on to the network must be either a local system account or a domain user account. Installation of Microsoft CRM will fail if the SQL Server service account is the local administrator."
The Services Accounts form says
1. Use the same account for each service. Auto start SQL Server Service
a. Service Settings
1. Use the Local System account
2. Use a Domain User account.
What should I choose?
