BuiltIN Administrator Account

  • We typically revoke the sysadmin role from this account on our instances but I'm running into a problem doing this when I have a Cluster.

    It appears that the cluster services require this role.

    Has anyone determined a way around this?





  • Nope, clustering does require the Builtin/Admin role. I haven't seen any 'fix' or 'work around' for this.


  • Grant sa  access to the cluster account and then revoke builtin\admin role.  Below is the KB article.


  • Don't forget the NT Authority\System login if Full-Text Indexing is installed. It's at the bottom of that article.
