Viewed 382 times


Before installing Zerto with a specific user account, a user should check to see if the account has the privileges under 'Log on as a Service'. 


To add/check "Log on as a service" permissions:
  1. Run Start Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Local Security Policy
  2. Select  Local Policies > User Rights Assignment > Log on as a service
  3. If you do not see the account - Click Add User or Group, and then add the appropriate account to the list of accounts that possess the Log on as a service right.
  4. If you see the account or group under "Local Security Settings". Then the account has the proper privileges.
