Domain service accounts for R services in SQL 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Is it possible to use domain service accounts instead of the local MSSQLSERVERXX accounts in the SQLRUserGroup? As I understand the MSSQLSERVERXX needs 'Log on locally' and that is blocked by GPO.

  • I am not sure whether the MSSQLSERVERXX need "Log on locally", and I am pretty sure that they cannot be replaces with domain service accounts.
