  • Db_datareader and db_datawriter roles, as well as permissions to execute stored procedures for the Enterprise Manager database on the Microsoft SQL Server. Alternatively, you can assign this account the db_owner role for the Enterprise Manager database (see Step 8).
  • Full Control NTFS permissions for the VBRCatalog folder where index files are stored.
