We are using MS SQL 2008 R2

Can we assign other users to run the jobs in SQL server agent? how to do that?

By default, the MS SQL server creates default user to SQL server service? what is it?

hi

sure you can, but you need to make sure the account has the necessary rights and if you are in a domain, it should be a domain user with the necessary rights

As you can see there is some confusion here. Are you talking about the startup account for the SQL Server Agent service?

Actually I want to the the startup, it seems to me the MS SQL by default to set "Network Service" account to run the SQL agent service, correct?

Second, I want to know if we can assign an user or a group to run the particular job.

Dear wasabi3689

check out this article

Server Configuration - Service Accounts

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc281953.aspx

it mentions that "There is no default logon account for this service.(Sql agent)"

Second sorry i didnt understand What do you mean by

" I want to know if we can assign an user or a group to run the particular job"

jobs run by your sql agent service, and they have the access of the account that is assigned to this service.

you have a job owner but not a specific permission for a group or a user
