Setting Up Windows Service Accounts

Each service in SQL Server represents a process or a set of processes to manage authentication of SQL Server operations with Windows. This topic describes the default configuration of services in this release of SQL Server, and configuration options for SQL Server services that you can set during SQL Server installation.

Depending on the components that you decide to install, SQL Server Setup installs the following services:

  • SQL Server Database Services - The service for the SQL Server relational Database Engine.

  • SQL Server Agent - Executes jobs, monitors SQL Server, fires alerts, and enables automation of some administrative tasks.

    NoteNote

    For SQL Server and SQL Server Agent to run as services in Windows, SQL Server and SQL Server Agent must be assigned a Windows user account. For more information about how to customize account information for each service, see How to: Install SQL Server 2008 (Setup).

  • Analysis Services - Provides online analytical processing (OLAP) and data mining functionality for business intelligence applications.

  • Reporting Services - Manages, executes, creates, schedules, and delivers reports.

  • Integration Services - Provides management support for Integration Services package storage and execution.

  • SQL Server Browser - The name resolution service that provides SQL Server connection information for client computers.

  • Full-text search - Quickly creates full-text indexes on content and properties of structured and semistructured data to provide document filtering and word-breaking for SQL Server.

  • SQL Server Active Directory Helper - Publishes and manages SQL Server services in Active Directory.

  • SQL Writer - Allows backup and restore applications to operate in the Volume Shadow Copy Service (VSS) framework.

    Important noteImportant

    Always use SQL Server tools such as SQL Server Configuration Manager to change the account used by the SQL Server or SQL Server Agent services, or to change the password for the account. In addition to changing the account name, SQL Server Configuration Manager performs additional configuration such as setting permissions in the Windows Registry so that the new account can read the SQL Server settings. Other tools such as the Windows Services Control Manager can change the account name but do not change associated settings. If the service cannot access the SQL Server portion of the registry, the service may not start properly.

The remainder of this topic is divided into the following sections:

During SQL Server Setup, you can configure the startup type - disabled, manual, or automatic - for some SQL Server services. The following table shows the SQL Server services that can be configured during installation. For unattended installations, you can use the switches in a configuration file or at a command prompt.

2The SQL Server Agent service is disabled on instances of SQL Server Express and SQL Server Express with Advanced Services.

To start and run, each service in SQL Server must have an account configured during installation. Startup accounts used to start and run SQL Server can be built-in system accounts, local user accounts, or domain user accounts.

Domain User Account

If the service must interact with network services, access domain resources like file shares or if it uses linked server connections to other computers running SQL Server, you might use a minimally-privileged domain account. Many server-to-server activities can be performed only with a domain user account. This account should be pre-created by domain administration in your environment.

Local User Account

If the computer is not part of a domain, a local user account without Windows administrator permissions is recommended.

Local Service Account

The Local Service account is a built-in account that has the same level of access to resources and objects as members of the Users group. This limited access helps safeguard the system if individual services or processes are compromised. Services that run as the Local Service account access network resources as a null session without credentials. Be aware that the Local Service account is not supported for the SQL Server or SQL Server Agent services. The actual name of the account is "NT AUTHORITY\LOCAL SERVICE".

Network Service Account

The Network Service account is a built-in account that has more access to resources and objects than members of the Users group. Services that run as the Network Service account access network resources by using the credentials of the computer account. The actual name of the account is "NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE".

Local System Account

Local System is a very high-privileged built-in account. It has extensive privileges on the local system and acts as the computer on the network. The actual name of the account is "NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM".

In addition to having user accounts, every service has three possible startup states that users can control:

  • Disabled   The service is installed but not currently running.

  • Manual   The service is installed, but will start only when another service or application needs its functionality.

  • Automatic   The service is automatically started by the operating system.

The following table shows optional accounts for each SQL Server service, and the startup states for each service.

1For failover cluster configurations, use the domain user account and the start up type is set to manual..

2The SQL Server Agent service is disabled on instances of SQL Server Express and SQL Server Express with Advanced Services.

3By default, for failover cluster installations and named instances, the SQL Server Browser is set to start automatically after Setup finishes.

Security Note   Always run SQL Server services by using the lowest possible user rights. Use a specific low-privilege user account or domain account instead of a shared account for SQL Server services. Use separate accounts for different SQL Server services. Do not grant additional permissions to the SQL Server service account or the service groups. Permissions will be granted through group membership or granted directly to a service SID where a service SID is supported.

Supported Service Configurations

SQL Server uses a security group to set resource ACLs rather than using the service account directly, so changing the service account can be done without having to repeat the resource ACL process. The security group can be a local security group, a domain security group or a service SID.

During SQL Server installation, SQL Server Setup creates a service group for each SQL Server component. These groups simplify granting the permissions that are required to run SQL Server services and other executables, and help secure SQL Server files.

Depending on the service configuration, the service account for a service or service SID is added as a member of the service group during install or upgrade.

SQL Server enables per-service SID for each of its services on Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista operating systems in SQL Server 2008 to provide service isolation and defense in depth. The per-service SID is derived from the service name and is unique to that service. For example, a service SID name for SQL Server service might be NT Service\MSSQL$<InstanceName>. Service isolation enables access to specific objects without the need to run a high-privilege account or weaken the security protection of the object. By using an access control entry that contains a service SID, a SQL Server service can restrict access to its resources.

The following table shows the supported service configurations for new and upgraded installations on Windows Server 2008 or Windows Vista.

New installation

Upgrade

  • Stand-alone instance - Service group with service SID

  • Failover cluster instance - Service SID

  • Failover cluster instance - Domain Service group

  • Domain Controller - Service SID

  • Domain Controller - Service group with service account

  • Stand-alone instance - Domain Service group with service SID

  • Failover cluster instance - Domain Service group with service account

The following table shows the service configurations for new and upgraded installations on Windows Server 2003 or Windows XP.

New installation

Upgrade

  • Stand-alone instance- Service group with service account

  • Failover cluster instance - Domain service group with service account

  • Domain Controller - Service group with service account

  • Stand-alone instance - Domain Service group with service account

  • Failover cluster instance - Domain Service group with service account

For stand-alone instances of SQL Server on Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 operating systems, service SIDs are added to the service group, and the service SID for SQL Server Engine and SQL Server Agent is added as a login to the Sysadmin server role.

For SQL Server failover cluster instances on Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 operating systems, by default, SQL Server Setup uses the service SID and sets SQL Server and Operating System resource ACLs to the service SID.

NoteNote

To use domain groups on a SQL Server failover cluster, they must be pre-created before you run setup. We recommend that you use unique domain groups when you install SQL Server services on a SQL Server failover cluster.

Changing Account Properties

To change the service accounts, password, service startup type, or other properties of any SQL Server–related service, use SQL Server Configuration Manager. For reporting services, use the Reporting Services Configuration Tool. Note that renaming the instance of SQL Server does not rename SQL Server security groups. The security groups will continue to function with the old names after the renaming operation.

Instance-aware services are associated with a specific instance of SQL Server, and have their own registry hives. You can install multiple copies of instance-aware services by running SQL Server Setup for each component or service. Instance-unaware services are shared among all installed SQL Server instances. They are not associated with a specific instance, are installed only once, and cannot be installed side-by-side.

Instance-aware services in SQL Server include the following:

  • SQL Server

  • SQL Server Agent

    Be aware that the SQL Server Agent service is disabled on instances of SQL Server Express and SQL Server Express with Advanced Services.

  • Analysis Services

  • Reporting Services

  • Full-text search

Instance-unaware services in SQL Server include the following:

  • Integration Services

  • SQL Server Browser

  • SQL Server Active Directory Helper

  • SQL Writer

The following table shows the user groups created by SQL Server Setup that are granted specific Windows NT user rights.
