Installing SQLServer2008 - Services Credentials
Posted on 2008-10-31
I am in the middle of installing SQL Server 2008 web edition on a Vista box.
I have an administrator account and one other admin account I created.
During install, it is asking me to setup the Service Accounts. It says they will be configured automatically where possible to use a low privilege account.
It errors saying the credentials are invalid.
When it allows me to specify an account, it only provides two options:
NT AUTHORITY/NETWORK SERVICE
Neither of which are on my system. How do I get those accounts. Do I create them via the Computer Manager, Add User? Shouldn't they have been automatically created?
Where do I find these built-in system accounts?
