Group Policy for SQL2005 server: Local Group Problem RRS feed

  • Question

  • The SQL Server install grants required rights to local groups.  However, our domain policy removes those rights.  I requested OU for the new SQL Server 2005 machines.  For just this OU, is it difficult to update domain policy to exclude removing rights for the local groups used by SQL Server?  Should we also restrict which accounts can be members of the local groups?  I'm not a active directory person and need to communicate with our security administrator what is needed.  I would like to use the local groups rather than granting rights to a service domain accounts if possible.
