Can TFS service account be non interactive?

by XDK 8. October 2015 19:34

Explanation:

Yes. The TFS service account can be non interactive. But the account which is used to install and configure should be interactive and should have the following permissions.

  • Local admin on the TFS Server
  • SysAdmin on SQL Server

The interactive admin account used to install and configure the TFS will grant the necessary permissions to the non interactive Service account
