I have a company that will be installing MS Dynamics onto our server, and has requested the following:
- Create 'SQLServer' domain user account for SQL services, with log on as service rights
Note that this is for SBS 2003.  I'm not sure what "log on as service rights" means or how to implement it ...  Thoughts?

Giving a user logon has a service right allows a user account to be placed within a service under the services.msc. Look over this link which will give you instructions.

Looks like a good link.  I will give this a try when back onsite in the morning and give it a try.  Thanks for the prompt reply, dariusq.

The links provided showed some insight, but in the end, I received this info from the company doing the Dynamics install:
To setup the SQLServer account to logon as a service: Start >> All Programs >> Administrative Tools >> Local Security Policy. On the left, expand Security Settings >> Local Policies >> high-light User Rights Assignment. On the right, double-click Log On as a Service. Add the SQLServer domain account.
Hope this helps somebody in the future ...

That is the correct way to do that. My second link provides that information. I was in a rush that day so that is why I didn't type it all out for you.
