Re: Domain Admin group



No it's not needed unless the SQL Admin is also tasked with
administering everything in the network, not just SQL boxes.
Yes they can manage the boxes without being a domain admin.
You'd probably want the SQL Admin to be member of the local
admins group on the boxes where SQL is installed but doesn't
need to be a domain admin.

Is it a good practice to have SQL admin in the Domain Admin group? Can SQL
admin manage SQL servers without being Domain Admin? Also, our SQL admin
manages 2 node cluster system. Would this have any implications if he is
removed from the Domain Admin group?
Thank you
