Installation Permissions

Updated: June 25, 2007

Applies To: Windows Server 2008, Windows Vista

The following table shows the administrative permissions required to install different Message Queuing software features. By default, logging on using an account with these permissions allows the applicable Message Queuing objects to be created in Active Directory Domain Services during Message Queuing installation.

 

Message Queuing computer Permission level required

Message Queuing server on a domain controller

domain administrative permissions (or member of the Domain Admins group)

Message Queuing server on a nondomain controller with Routing Support

enterprise administrative permissions (or member of the Enterprise Admins group)

Message Queuing server on a nondomain controller without Routing Support

local administrative permissions (or member of the local Administrators group)

Independent client

local administrative permissions (or member of the local Administrators group)

Dependent client

Message Queuing 5.0 cannot be installed as a dependent client. A Windows Server 2008 R2 computer with Message Queuing 5.0 installed can still act as a supporting server for computers with earlier versions of Message Queuing that are installed as a dependent client.

noteNote
When installing Message Queuing in a server cluster, the user account under which the cluster service is running must be granted permissions to create computer objects and Message Queuing objects. See the table below for specific permissions needed to create specific objects.

noteNote
If you do not want to grant users such general or wide-ranging permissions to install Message Queuing, you can grant permissions to create those objects specifically required to create different Message Queuing computers. The following table lists the specific child objects in Active Directory Domain Services that you must be granted permission to create for Message Queuing installation to complete.

 

Message Queuing computer Specific permissions required For which object

Message Queuing server (on a domain controller or on a nondomain controller with routing enabled)

Create MSMQ Configuration Objects

applicable domain controller object located in Active Directory Users and Computers

Message Queuing server (on a domain controller or on a nondomain controller with routing enabled)

Create All Child Objects

Servers container object located in Active Directory Sites and Services

Message Queuing server (on a nondomain controller with no routing)

Create MSMQ Configuration Objects

applicable computer object located in Active Directory Users and Computers

Independent client

Create MSMQ Configuration Objects

applicable computer object located in Active Directory Users and Computers

Dependent client

none

not applicable

You can grant these specific permissions to specific users or to all users in a domain using the Delegation of Control Wizard.

For more information about Message Queuing objects, where they are created, and where they are located in Active Directory Domain Services, see Message Queuing and Active Directory Domain Services.

For more information about permissions for objects, see Access Control for Message Queuing.

noteNote
To install Message Queuing, you may also need the Delete MSMQ Configuration Objects permission, because if Setup finds an msmq (MSMQ Configuration) object in Active Directory Domain Services, it must delete it before creating a new one.

noteNote
To uninstall Message Queuing, you must be granted the Delete MSMQ Configuration Objects permission.
