GeoCue: Configuring a Service User

KBA-01033-F7C9L0
Purpose & Scope
Near the end of the GeoCue Server, Client and Federator installations, a dialog box will appear prompting you to enter a username/password combination.  The Software runs as an NT Service.  In order for the software to properly administer the Warehouses, the service must be running under an account that has permission to log into the machine and that has domain level access to read/write from the Warehouse locations.  This user is commonly referred to as the GeoCue Service User.
Procedure
The GeoCue Service User is the user on behalf of whom all database updates are performed so it is important that this user also be configured as a SQL administrator for the GeoCue and Federator databases. It is recommended to set-up a unique user that has the necessary permissions before starting the installation process.

When installing on a domain network this usually entails creating a GeoCue Service User in the active directory and then making that user a local administrator on the server and client machines.

When installing on a workgroup network this usually entails creating a GeoCue Service User on the server and then making an identical user on each client machine using the same password.  The GeoCue Service User needs to be made a local administrator on the server and client machines.
