Applies To: System Center Configuration Manager 2007, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R3, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP1, System Center Configuration Manager 2007 SP2

Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 uses many accounts, groups, and SQL Server database roles to perform management functions on the site server, site systems, site database server, and client computers. Configuration Manager 2007 can perform many management functions using the Local System account, which simplifies management because the operating system manages the account and password. Some functions, however, require an actual user account, group, or database role. The following section describes all of the accounts used by Configuration Manager 2007, their required permissions, and the account creation and maintenance, along with any recommended best practices for using the account.
