  • As for every application and servers, local admin permissions and local admins always already have permissions for RDP

  • Hi xyz2012,

    For local installations, you must run Setup as an administrator. If you install SQL Server from a remote share, you must use a domain account that has read and execute permissions on the remote share.

    Hope this could help you.
