SharePoint 2013 - services accounts permissions RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Can anyone check me this accounts requirements for SP installation, please?

    local admin on SP server
    Member of the Server admin SQL Server security role.
    If you run Windows PowerShell cmdlets that affect a database, this account must be a member of the db_owner fixed database role for the database.
    Does this account needs any other permissions on SQL Server box?

    local admin on SP Server (can be removed from local admin group after UPS is set)

    User Profile Synchronization Service
    Requires Log on Locally permission on the computer running the instance of the User Profile Synchronization Service.

    User Profile Service
    Replicating Directory Changes permissions on the domains being synchronized.
    Replicating Directory Changes permissions on the configuration partition of the domains being synchronized if the NetBIOS and fully qualified domain name (FQDN) names do not match.

    Default content access account
    Must have Read Access to the content being crawled.
    What is this exactly and how to set it? Read access to content DB's and to user profile DB?

    Thank you so much,
