On the Site Collection Administrators page, text fields appear for a primary and a secondary site collection administrator. If there is a single administrator user listed, then move that user to be the secondary user, and add the specified Windows user account created for DocRetriever to be the primary user. To accomplish this, do the following:
a.
In the Primary site collection administrator field, select and cut the domain and user name.
b.
In the Primary site collection administrator field, type the specified user name and click Check Names.

For example, type DRAgent and click Check Names.

The domain (if a local user) and user name for the specified user populates. The information for the specified user appears as the primary site collection administrator.

Next steps

Using SQL Server Management Studio, you must now apply the sysadmin role to the user account designated for the DocRetriever Agent user account.

Applying the Systems Administrator database role to Windows user accounts

This task is a step in the roadmap for setting up a Windows user account for DocRetriever Agent. It is also the only step required to set up a Windows user account for DocRetriever Console.

On the machine where SQL Server Management Studio is installed (to manage the SQL Server instance used for DocRetriever), add the systems administrator (sysadmin) database role to the Windows user account designated for the DocRetriever Agent, and for the user account designated for the DocRetriever Console.

Because the user interfaces differ, these steps are detailed for SQL Server 2014 on Windows Server 2012, SQL Server 2012 on Windows Server 2012 R2, and SQL Server 2008 R2 on Windows 2008 R2.
