Configuring the Domain User Security Settings

Explains how to configure security for the domain user in a Webtrends installation.

If you want to be able to schedule reports in Microsoft Word or Excel format, the domain user account must have certain security settings. During installation, you will specify the domain user account for Webtrends services to use. If you choose to split your Webtrends services between multiple domain accounts, this information applies only to the account associated with your Webtrends UI services.

To give the domain user account the required security settings:

  1. From Windows Administrative Tools, open the Local Security Policy dialog and select Local Policies > User Rights Assignment .
  2. For each of the listed policies, right-click, and select Properties.
    • Act as port of the operating system
    • Allow log on locally
    • Debug Programs
    • Log on as a service
  3. Click Add User or Group, type a domain user account, and click Check Names. Select the user and click Apply.
    Note: You must specify a single domain user, not a group. The domain user must be a member of the local administrators group on the computer where Webtrends Analytics is installed.

To grant a user access to the computer with the UI Server role:

  1. From Windows Administrative Tools, open the Local Security Policy dialog and select Local Policies > User Rights Assignment .
  2. Select Access this computer from the network, right-click, and select Properties.
  3. Click Add User or Group, type a domain user account, and click Check Names. You must specify a specific domain user and not a group. The domain user must be a member of the local administrators group on the computer where Webtrends Analytics is installed.
