SQL Server >> SQL Installation Questions

When you install SQL Server, is it necessary to run the SQL Setup
install under the credential in which SQL Server service would run
under? Or is that okay if I logged into the computer under my
credentials and then install SQL Server. Is there a best practice for
this?

Also, when SQL Server is being installed the ploicy here is to install
it on D: not the local hard drive of the server, are there any
disadvantages to it?

Thanks

Hi

There are no need to de logged on as the SQL Service user. During the
install you just enter if you want to run it under the local system user
or if you want to use a Domain account.

I'm not aware of any disadvantages on installing on D: rather than C:,
but I've never really had to dig into it though.
