Setting up a domain account for the Scheduler service

The Scheduler service is installed to run under the local Windows™ system account, which is only applicable if the service is running on the local machine. To run Scheduler that uses a Scheduler database that is installed on a different machine, then the service needs to log on using a domain user name and password. The user and password are set in the Windows Services application.

The account under which the service runs must have the following minimum file permissions:

Directories and filesMin. permission
The Scheduler directory that contains the file Scheduler.mdbModify
Scheduler.mdbRead, Write
Directory containing the DLLs and EXEs for iBase SchedulerList Folder Contents
DLLs and EXEs for iBase SchedulerExecute
Directory containing the file on which a file trigger is created— no permissions are required on the file itself.List Folder Contents
Directory containing the batch scripts or plug-ins that are required to execute as task actions. Alternatively, you might assign List Folder Contents permission to the directory and Read and Execute permission to the files.Read & Execute
Data files for import or the directories that contain the data files. You require Write permission if the file is to be altered by a batch script or plug-in, and Modify permission if the file is to be deleted by a task action.Read
Directory containing the iBase security file.Modify
iBase security fileRead, Write
iBase database directory (JET databases only)Modify
iBase database file (JET databases only)Read, Write
iBase database file (SQL Server databases only)Read

The Windows Services application automatically grants the domain account the permissions that are required to run services.

If you are using Windows integrated security (NTLM authentication), then the domain account needs to have permit access for the relevant SQL Server databases.
