Windows permissions for database service accounts

When configured with Trust Protection Platform to use Windows integrated authentication to a MSSQL database, you must allocate the following permissions to the database service accounts on all Venafi servers:

Service Account Log On as a Service Log On as a Batch Job Local Windows administrator group
Database owner accountClosed (Also DBO account) This is a service account that Trust Protection Platform uses for installations, upgrades, and administrative maintenance of the database. It can be a domain service account when used with Windows integrated authentication, or a MSSQL account when used with MSSQL authentication. This account requires "Log On as a Service" permissions on all Venafi servers. See also operational database account.    
Operational database accountClosed (Also limited database account) This is a service account that Trust Protection Platform uses for everyday operations. It can be a domain service account when used with Windows integrated authentication, or a MSSQL account when used with MSSQL authentication. This account requires "Log On as a Service" permissions, and also needs to be part of the Local Administrators group, on all Venafi servers. Database grants for this account are automatically managed by the system. See also database owner account.

With Windows integrated authentication, the Venafi Windows services and IIS application pools will be configured to launch as the operational database account. We require the security permissions "Log On As a Service" and " Log On As a Batch Job" on all Venafi servers. The Venafi installer will attempt to apply permissions automatically, if possible; however sometimes enterprise group policy domain settings prohibit us from making that change. In these cases, you will need to work with your Active Directory team to grant both database service accounts the permissions specified in the table above.

NOTE  If you use the same account for both roles, that account must have all three permissions: Log On as a Service, Log On as a Batch Job, and be a member of the Local Windows administrator group.
