Enable Server Proxy Account RRS feed

  • Question

  • In some of our Machines we are not installing the Management Studio. In a machine where Management Studio is not there how to do Enable Server Proxy Account.

    Or is there any way to Invoke Server properties window through a Exe / command prompt.

  • Also you can open SSMS on some other instance and connect to this instance (which does not have SSMS) to make the changes

  • Hi,

    Once you login to SSMS and right click the server and go to properties and click the Security tab


    Run the below script

    USE [master]
    CREATE CREDENTIAL [##xp_cmdshell_proxy_account##] WITH IDENTITY = N'aaa', SECRET = N'password'

  • Hi ,


    To enable this option, we could use the sqlcmd, here is a sample:


    sqlcmd -s server_name -e -q "USE [master]CREATE CREDENTIAL [##xp_cmdshell_proxy_account##] WITH IDENTITY = N'server_name\proxy_name', SECRET = N'password'"


    Please refer to the below links:

    Please feel free to ask if you have any questions.
