Question
What NT permissions are needed in order to correctly run Deployment Solution, but provide a better security environment than the default "Everyone/Everyone" that is enabled when Deployment Solution is installed?

Answer
The service account running Deployment Solution needs to have full access to the eXpress directory. Any users accessing Deployment Solution server via remote Windows consoles need to have full access to the directory. The account used by BootWorks to map the eXpress share during the imaging process needs to be able to Read, Write, and Modify the Temp directory under the eXpress share, as well as Read, Write, and Modify any images stored within the eXpress directory.
