Due to security hardening requirements we have removed the Guest account from MSDB (SQL 2005) - is there a Supported workaround for this to get OCS 2007 R2 working? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've read through blog entry http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/communicationsserversetup/thread/8b428bd3-0509-4859-ac11-122bdbef06cc which was very informative.  The problem we have with our configuration is the Guest account has been removed from MSDB.  The blog entry suggests a workaround for this but it is unsupported.  Is there a supported workaround available to avoid me having to grant access to Guest to MSDB?  Can I create an account in MSDB with the specific privs required in MSDB for OCS - does anyone know what privs are required - but would this be supported?

    Many thanks,
    Caroline Young.
