I'm the SA here, I've never used the product. But the vendor is asking for things that violate common industry security best practices. Here is some of what I'm being told is needed to make this run;
- A Service Account that is a Local Administrator (Service Accounts that are Administrators should be discouraged)
- All users need to have access to this Service Account (shared accounts are a violation)
- The Service Account needs to be able to perform Interactive Logins (RDP) (RDP with Service Accounts is a violation)
Sounds a bit strange.
To run a Qlik Sense server you need 1 service account that needs Local Admin rights on the server that has Qlik Server installed.
None of your end-users need to have access to it. Once the security rules are setup correctly, nobody even need to use the service account anymore as other users or group will get specific Admin rights (Security, Deployment, Content or Admin or a combination) if they need it for their role.
The regular users will need to have access to the HUB, usually just by being part of an Active Directory or other directory system.
Are we talking about a "regular" Qlik Sense install or some sort of integration in another product?
Any specific Qlik partner making this suggestion?
And, to answer your other questions, I think this is a stand alone 3 node install for now, that is designed to integrate with CENX CORTX down the road, but the stand alone QLIK install isn't even successful at this point.
