QlikView Server Service Account

I have just started installing QV Server.  It is asking me for an account to run the services.  Do I need this account to be on the Active Directory or can it just be a Local Administrator?

Re: QlikView Server Service Account

The service accounts need to run with local administrator privileges and have to be member of the Qlikview Adminstrators group.

Re: QlikView Server Service Account

Yes I have always understood this.  I need to know if it can be a local account like MyPC\qvadmin and be added to Local Administrators or if it HAS to be on the domain for which users will log in to AccessPoint with, so like MyDomain\qvadmin.

Re: QlikView Server Service Account

The service account doesn't have to be a member of a domain admin group.

Re: QlikView Server Service Account

Requiring he service account to be a full administrator mostly defeats the purpose of running under a separate account. There should be a list comprising of the minimal set of rights actually needed. Besides access to %ProgramData%\QlikTech it needs to be able to use HTTP.SYS to listen to the various TCP ports, but I don't know what user right lets one do that. Anything else?
