  1. HI,
    I had some error in the Windows Registry during this procedure.
    For example the fact that the user account had NO EXECUTE rights on the DataBase.
    I read on the Microsoft TechNet that the user that execute the Search Service Application MUST be a member of FARM Admins.
    Can you confirm that?

  2. It can be almost impossible to find well-qualified users on this matter, however, you look like you be aware of exactly what you’re covering!
