Hey DBA gurus:

I had this requirement where I am suppose to run all my SQL Servers 2005 under non admin account by giving specific permissions to the account that is used to run SQL Server service. I am able to configure my standalone servers without any issues. However on one of a test cluster it is giving me pain:

I get following error after I gave neccessary permissions on cluster node, and remove the account from local administrator group. Once the account is added back to admin group SQLServer service comes online without any problem. I compared registry settings for cluster resource as mentioned in one of the thread and they remain same in both the cases. Please help.

Thanks
Ajay

IF you are using SQL Server 2005 you do not need SQL Server to run as a local administrator. If you use the SQL Server Configuration Manager to set the service account it assigns it appropriate permissions without using local administrator. The SQL Server install creates a set of Groups for SQL Server services and the SQL Server service account just needs to be in the correct group(s).
