Should SQL Agent account also be a SQL Server Login?


  • Hi All,

    Should the Windows account being used for our SQL Agent also be included as a SQL Server login?  I'm referring to a single intance/box of SQL Server and the Agent.  

    This is a trivial question as I'm not trying to resolve any kind of error.  I'm simply trying to answer a question that came up.  It seems I've typically seen the SQL Agent account as a Login on the same server, but is that even necessary to query databases there?
