1 Answer 1

  1. 1st you have to login with the farm admin account in order to start config wizard
  2. The account which will run service should be domain account. Rest sharepoint will fix the permission for that account.

  • You mean the service account should be a domain account inside the sharepoint windows server and the database server ?
