SQL Server Data Tools - Business Intelligence for Visual Studio 2012 - HasSecurityBackupAndDebugPrivilegesCheck impact?
Friday, March 08, 2013 12:00 PM
Just installed "SQL Server Data Tools – Business Intelligence for Visual Studio 2012" from here:
To overcome a setup support rule check issue, I had to install the tool with the following switches:
setup.exe /ACTION=Install /FEATURES=SSDTBI_VS2012 /SKIPRULES=HasSecurityBackupAndDebugPrivilegesCheck
The installation seems to be successful, SSDT seems to be functional. (I don't expect that SSDT would deal with auditing or security logs.)
Again, this is NOT a SQL Server 2012 installation. It just comes as a SQL Server 2012 setup package.
Can anyone explain the impact of using this switch value? Or tell what features will be unavailable / not fully functional due to skipping this check?
Thanks in advance,

That rule is just to avoid errors during SQL Server installation only as explained on the following article:
Skipping this rule won’t have any effect on the functionality of SQL Server Data Tools.
Hope this helps.

(P.S. I don't understand why this rule check have been left in the setup package, as it's just a client tool.)

You are correct. As you demonstrated, is not needed for SSDT.
Thank you for visiting MSDN forums!
Have a good weekend!
