Rules and Guidelines for the User Account

Consider the following rules and guidelines when you configure the user account that logs in to the service:
  • If you store files on a network drive, use a system account instead of the Local System account to run the Informatica service.
  • If you configure shared storage on a network drive to store files used by the domain or the application services that run on the domain, the user account that runs the Informatica service must have access to the shared location.
  • If you want to use the Local System account, verify that the user starting the Informatica service has access to the network location.
  • If the user that starts the Informatica service cannot access the shared storage location, service processes on the node fail or the node or domain will not start.
  • If you configure a system user account, the user account must have the
    Act as operating system
    permission. For more information, see the Windows documentation.
