I have been tasked to install 2012 on a new machine which we will move current 2008 R2 database over too (approx. 26). This machine will also hold a new instance of SharePoint (not sure if this makes any difference).

I have gone through the setup.exe process up to Service Accounts tab to see what accounts are needed: (They are:)

1. SQL Server Agent
2. SQL Server Database Engine
3. SQL Server Reporting Services
4. SQL Server Integration Services 11.0
5. SQL Server Browser

It is my understanding that I should at least create two basic AD accounts (like sqluser1, sqluser2). One AD account to be a local admin on the new server and to be the account that installs the SQL (I also read that afterwards I should disable the account - not delete just disable--??). The Second AD account should just be a regular AD account.

???????????

So from the above I would guess the following (Please any help)
1. = sqluser1
2. = sqluser2
3. = sqluser2
4. = sqluser2
5. = sqluser2
???????????


Also - I see a lot of people talking about "SQL Server service account" - which account is this talking about?

Thanks for any advice,

Javeed,
Thank you for your reply.

So maybe:
1. = sqluser2
2. = sqluser1
3. = sqluser1
4. = sqluser1
5. = sqluser1

??

Do I need a AD user for each one? Which one needs to be Admin of the local machine? This machine will be access across a world wide network.

yes, you need to create a domain account with minimum privileges for each of the services.
