Select the account that will be used to start Administration Server as a service.
You will have to select a domain account if, for example, you plan to use as the DBMS a SQL Server instance of any version, including SQL Express, that is located on another device, and/or you plan to locate the shared folder on another device.
Starting from version 10 Service Pack 3, Kaspersky Security Center supports managed service accounts (MSA) and group managed service accounts (gMSA). If these types of accounts are used in your domain, you can select one of them as the account for the Administration Server service.
Before specifying MSA or gMSA, you must install the account on the same device on which you want to install Administration Server. If the account is not installed yet, then cancel the Administration Server installation, install the account, and then restart the Administration Server installation. For details about installation of managed service accounts on a local device, refer to the official Microsoft documentation.
To specify MSA or gMSA:
The account that you selected must have different permissions, depending on the DBMS that you plan for use.
For security reasons, please do not assign the privileged status to the account under which you run Administration Server.
If later you decide to change the Administration Server account, you can use the utility for Administration Server account switching (klsrvswch).Page top
