Environment

Release: AAMOS499000-8.0-Automic Applications Manager-OS400 Agent
Component:

Resolution

Symptoms

There is some errors in the documentation regarding Windows user accounts.


Cause

The documentation was written for Windows NT, and XP, and is not up to date for Windows 2003+


Resolution

1. Advanced User Right: Act as part of the operating system.   This is not rquired on Windows 2003+ systems.
 
2. Domain/User Must belong to the domain/administrator group.  This is an incorrect statement in the users guide.  The user does not need to belong to the 'Domain Admins' group.  The user SHOULD belong to all the groups needed to ensure the permissions for executing jobs is correct.  Typically this would be the "Local Administrator" group.
