20 over SharePoint farms

This question has been answered by DELL-Andrey M

We have 20 over SharePoint farms. We use different farm account for each setup, which means that there are 20 over farm accounts.

What is your advice on Quest Site Administrator setup in this kind of environment?

  • The most convenient approach is having single account that has permissions for each farm. But if it’s not possible you can have several Site Admin installations:

    Each agent can have different sets of permissions. If the enterprise installation includes several farms and no account has administrator rights on all of them, separate administrative accounts can be used for each farm assigned to the corresponding agent.
