VSA on SQL server
part of the EV requirement when you install EV or install SP or move SQL databases to a new SQl server it requires to have VSA (Enterprise Vault service account) to a be in a local admin on the SQL server during the install or any changes.
My question is - does anyone knows why EV service account need this admin rights. Do we know what sort of process does on the SQL server otherthan having full access to the EV databases.
I am in the process of moving EV SQL datbases to a newly consolidated SQL 2008 server and our DBA team refused to give admin rights to the EV service account. they are worried that thsi admin right might do things all over on their SQl server.
