Dear All

thank you for hosting me first of all, this is my first topic (hopefully i opened it correctly)

i would like to ask you the below question:

is there a way to use a windows account (that already has sysadmin role) in my MS SQL to create a primavera P6 (16.2) database? i am trying through the DBSetup script and i get "SQLServerException: Login Failed for user '...' " of course when i use the sa or any other SQL authenticated account with sysadmin rights i am able to proceed.

So, is there any way to create an SQL DB for primavera by using a windows authenticated account?

 

thanks

Michalis

Santos is correct if you want to switch over you will have to use LDAP Authentication which is a windows log in user based environment.

Is it LDAP Authentication you require?

Link below from Oracle might help

The sa is working fine, but my manager wants to stop using the account and use windows authenticated accounts for better tracking\auditing. How can i have a clear official answer if what i am asking is doable or not?
