    help upgrading to epo 4.5 Patch 5


      My organization uses a split configuration.  They are on 4.5 Patch 3 (937).  I just got here and am planning getting Patch 5 installed.  In the configuration guide that we have it says that I need to grant a SQL account local logon rights before I do the upgrade, which doesn't seem necessary to me as I am fairly sure that patch 5 has nothing to do with SQL and the fact that the SQL server is on a completely different machine so I dont see what giving it logon rights to the ePO server is going to do...  Anyone have any experience with this?

          You need a login to access the ePO database (Windows or SQL user):


          The account used to upgradeePolicy Orchestrator must have rights to:

          •Create a new database, set permissions on tables and stored procedures, and create SQL Jobs.

          •Modify, Delete, Rename, Create, Use, Read, Write, Change Permissions, on any, and/or all, Tables, Stored Procedures, Columns, Rows, Fields, Views on the Master, TempDB, MSDB, and ePO Database.

          These abilities are given to these roles:

          •SQL administrator (SA)



          In the windows SQL server you don't need access.

            Patch upgrades invariably need to make changes to the db as described above to resolve issues addressed in the patch, hence the requirement.
