Question:

How do I configure UIM to use a domain account?

 

Introduction:

If you elect to use an Active Directory service account to connect to your SQL Server database in the database setup section of the UIM install, then the UIM installer sets up the Nimsoft Robot Watcher service with AD account user as seen below:

This service account also needs to be setup on the Windows server with following rights and group membership on UIM
1. Logon as Service
2. Logon locally
3. Member of local Administrators group
4. SQL Server login account for domain user used in UIM install

 

Answer:

Follow these steps to configure your UIM system for an Active Directory service account

1-  Logon as Service

You can assign items 1 & 2 using "Local Security Policy" and for 3; by default Domain Admins group is memeber of local Administrators group and use SQL Server Management Studio to create SQL Server login for domain account with approriate permissions.

Once, the above is configured, now you can run the UIM installer specifying an Active Directory account in database section.

Make sure that you specify AD user with Domain\User syntax.




Note:If installing UMP on a separate host than UIM primary hub, change the service login to match the Nimsoft Robot Watcher service login defined on UIM primary hub.
