Software Package Essentials 2010 - account used for installation RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have succesfully created a software package and applied it to a test group.
    It has installed succesfully onto the Vista workstation which is in that group.
    The user of the workstation is a standard domain user account.
    User is not a member of the local admin group.
    UAC is disabled on the workstation.
    Package is listed in the Windows Update history list.

    My question is
    What account does the package install under?
    Is it the Management Server Action Account? (which in my case is the Domain Administrator account)

    I am troubleshooting some issues and need to let a third-party know which account is used for software package installations.

    Many thanks in advance.

  • Hi,

    As far as I know, the account used to install software packages is the administrator account of the target computers.

    Meanwhile, regarding the account information in System Center Essentials, please also see the following document:

  • Thanks for replying Nicholas.

    That provides enough of an answer for my question.

    Just to clarify, in case anyone else has a similar question.

    Our domain administrators account is the Management Server Action Account within SCE.
    The only Admin account for the local PC's is also the domain administrators account.

    So yes the software packages will be installing on the client PC's using the domain administrators account.

    Thanks.
