Choosing Startup Account and Authentication

When configuring the Automation Server, you choose two parameters:

  • Startup Account — This is the Windows account under which the Automation Server is running. This account defines the security context for all operations performed by the Automation Server. By default, the built-in Local System account is used. You can keep the default settings or select another account. For example, if your Local System account does not have access to Active Directory, you need to select another Windows account with sufficient rights.
  • Connection — The Database Access Key imported to the Automation Server computer. The Database Access Key defines how the Automation Server connects to the Alloy Navigator database.
