Web Console requirements

You can open Active Administrator Web Console on a variety of devices in the following browsers:

Microsoft® Internet Explorer 11
Mozilla® Firefox® 62

System Center requirements

The following versions of Microsoft® System Center Operations Manager are supported.

Port requirements

NOTE: The AFS Server is the computer on which the Active Administrator® Server is installed and running the Active Administrator Foundation Service (AFS). The Console is the computer on which the Active Administrator Console is installed. The AFS Database Server is the computer on which the audit database resides.
If you are using the Azure® Active Directory® feature, TCP Ports 80 and 443 must be open on the Internet-facing firewall.

User privilege requirements

To install Active Administrator®, a user must hold administrative rights on the local system and the SQL instance that will host the Active Administrator database.

Active Administrator® can restore passwords when you restore accounts that were deleted. To enable password recovery, a minor modification is made to the Schema. To be able to modify the Schema, you must use an account that is a member of the Schema Admins group.

The Domain Administrator account provides the necessary permissions for the various Active Administrator® services to operate properly.

When choosing an account, keep these requirements in mind:

Active Administrator Foundation service (AFS) requires an account that is a member of the Domain Admins group. For more detailed permission requirements, see See the Quest® Active Administrator® 8.3 Install Guide for the specific permissions required for operation of each module and submodule.

On the database server, the database installation creates two local groups that control access to the audit database.
