Sharepoint 2013 SMAT tool office 365 migration tool help

I am not the original administrator of our Sharepoint 2013 on-prem instance.  I am reading the directions for the smat tool.  Msft wants us to run this and get the information back to them.  I have downloaded the smat tool onto one of the sharepoint front ends and am wanting to start the process.  Does the logged in user on the rdp connection to the sharepoint server have to be a Farm Service Account or a Farm administrator.  I am not sure what the passwords are for these accounts.  I do see them in active directory.

Just need a little help to get started correctly.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Helps to read the documentation

The tool is built to be run from within a SharePoint 2010 or 2013 farm.
To run the tool, all files must be extracted from any compressed package before execution.
The tool must run as the Farm service account. A farm administrator account is acceptable as long as the account has been given read access to all web applications. The account also needs explicit Full Control permissions on both Operations | Administrators and Sharing | Permissions on the User Profile Service Application. There are a series of checks to ensure the account has enough permissions prior to scanning the environment.The tool is built to be run from within a SharePoint 2010 or 2013 farm.
