User Accounts Required by the SQL Server Agent

Accounts configured at each of the following levels can be used for all the entities within that level. You can log on to any of the listed SQL user account levels that satisfy the account requirements.

You can also use a user account from which SQL Server services are running by providing logon credentials.

User Account Level

When to Use

CommCell

Configure the user account only if one person performs all the backup and restore operations in your organization.
