Active Administrator 8.4 - Release Notes

Port requirements

Additional requirements

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:

NOTE: For more detailed instructions, see https://support.quest.com/active-administrator/kb/209446/how-to-configure-a-non-domain-admin-audit-agent-service-account.

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

 

 

Active Administrator module requirements

For all Active Administrator® modules to operate properly, the Active Administrator Foundation service (AFS) requires an account that is a member of the Domain Admins group. However, you may want to customize access to each module for console users or the AFS account. See the Quest® Active Administrator® 8.4 Install Guide for the specific permissions required for operation of each module and submodule.
