2.5 Rights Needed for Installation in Active Directory Environments

In Active Directory domains, the installation must be done by a domain user that has local Administrator privileges on the computer and Active Directory Domain Administrator rights. This allows the Installation Wizard to set up a Dynamic File Services group for managing pairs and policies on DynamicFS servers in the domain, the Dynamic File Services Storage Rights group and an NDFS-servername proxy user in the domain that are used to access and manage data on remote secondary paths, and the Dynamic File Services Retention Review group.

For information about managing the group’s membership, see Active Directory Domain Configuration for Dynamic File Services in the Dynamic File Services Administration Guide.
