I am using v1.6.x of Octopus. Tentacle on my server runs under a domain account (it needs to contact other machines in the domain). It also needs to configure IIS in the server using powershel WebAdministration module. My question is: does this account need to be a local admin, or is there a way to avoid it?
It is possible to run Tentacle using custom permissions, but these add up to be almost equivalent to local administrator privileges anyway. There’s some discussion at: http://help.octopusdeploy.com/discussions/problems/64-installing-tentacle-under-workgroup-user-or-domain-account
Hope this helps,
I have figured out how to do almost anything, the only thing left (not working) is this step:
Start-Website -Name $ApplicationName
Do you have any idea what configuration I must add on IIS or system level to do this as a non-admin? I get access_denied.
Hi - no, not sure about this one.
