    QlikView server - AD Service account permission


           We are running QlikView server version 11.0.11414.0 on Windows 2008 R2 Standard Edition (x64).

           All the components are installed on a single server.


           QlikView Management Service (QMS)

           QlikView Directory Service Connector (DSC)

           QlikView Distribution Service (QDS)

           QlikView Server (QVS)

           QlikView Web Server (QVWS)


           When we try to run the 5 QlikView services (as above) under a AD Service account, they do not restart properly.

           The only service which restarts properly is the QlikView Server (QVS).

           All the other services starts but fails/crashes immediately.


           The only solution at this time is to make the Service account as a Local Admin on the server (or) to run the other 4 services under "Local System".

           I have provided the required permissions as per the QV11 Infrastructure -Minimum Security Requirements.pdf document.

           I have also provide the service account with COM permissions.


           We have a policy which restricts the Service account to have Admin privileges on the server.

           Kindly let me know if there is any other change I need to perform so that the Services can run under a AD Service account.


      Thanks in Advance,
