What permissions for an account is considered "least privileges"? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Community

        While installing Sharepoint the instruction said to install the database to
    use an account with the "least privileges". 

         I assume it was talking about NT account but it may have been referring to
    SQL Server account.  It didn't make a difference because I am the administrator
    on both and use the same user name and password for both.

        But from now on before  reinstalling I am going to create an account with the "least privieges" and use that account  during installing when instructed to do so .  Which is why I am asking privilegs would be considered the "least privileges" for an account to have when installing?

        Thank you
