service account for Qlik Sense Repository Database for April 2018 Release

Hello,

For the April 2018 Release should the account for the 'Qlik Sense Repository Database' be the Local System Account or a Windows User with local Admin. 

The documentation indicates to use a service account for all the services but I wanted to clarify if this also applies to the 'Qlik Sense Repository Database' service.

Thank You,

Michael

I just spoke to Qlik Support and they told me this service can run as the Local System Account.

Thanks for your assistance.

Hi,

are you trying to launch each service with a specific account or you just found that there is different accounts launching Qlik services ?

Hello,

I noticed on a new installation all the services except the Qlik Sense Repository Database are using a windows account.  The Qlik Sense Repository Database is using a Local System Account.


I wanted to make sure this is correct because the help indicates that all services should not use a Local System Account.  Maybe the exception is Qlik Sense Repository Database.

all the services need to be launched with a windows administrator account (local or domain you choose depending on your architecture..) , the one that you use during the install,

at the end of the install all the services should be configured and launch with that account, but sometimes it happens for me (I don't know why) to find exceptions like you.. it shouldn't happen because most of the time when I found this I'm experiencing problems accessing the hub or the QMC just after the install..

Maybe ltu‌ can give us his opinion on this ?
