Currently our SQL server is starting the sqlserveragent service as the local system account. Due to inadequate local disk space we are changing our backups to a folder on a separate server.
I am planning on having this be a domain account with access to the target destination and local user rights (not admin) on the sql box. I want to have this be as restrictive (yet functional) as possible.
Aside from the obvious upgrade to 2005/08/R2 or drop in another drive am I on the right track and is there something I missed?
