Best System Administration Practices

Posted on by 390

Hello, My question is, should we have an alternate administration user account set up for our administrators instead of using the SYSADMIN account?

    Hi Harris3563,

    Have you read the Microsoft Dynamics SL Security user guide?  It is located in the root folder of your SL installation in the User Guides folder.  You need to install the user guides in order for them to be accessible in that folder.  It discusses general security guidelines, including not assigning more rights to a user than necessary.  Since the Sysadmin roll has all rights, you wouldn't want that roll exploited.

    Thanks. Is there documentation stating this somewhere?

    Hi Harris3563,

    It is advisable to set up another administrative user so that you can change the level of their access in the future if needed.
