Is there a Microsoft document on “Why SQL DBA’s need Local Windows Administrator Privilege”?
I'm looking for a Microsoft Document or Article or Whitepaper on What OS level permissions are needed for SQL DBA (not SQL Service Account). There is a general assumption that SQL DBA's need Local Administrator Privilege but AFAIK it's needed only during SQL Install.
Any pointers to such document(s) will be appreciated.
Thanks & Regards
