User accounts

The database to use in the installation process of Snow Inventory Server could either be created beforehand or via Server Manager during the installation itself.

If the Snow Inventory database has been created beforehand, a SQL account with db_owner privileges is needed for accessing that database.

If the Snow Inventory database is to be created via Snow Inventory Server Configuration Manager, a SQL account with sa privileges is needed. This account will be used for accessing the database after the installation, so it is recommended to reduce the account privileges to a db_owner level after the installation.
