Background Service Credentials

We're currently running the background services for both Deploy and Inventory using an account that we would like to totally remove from our environment. In the documentation it says "You do not have to specify a domain for a local account. It is, however, strongly recommended to run the background service as a domain administrator." Is there any disadvantage to running the service using a local admin account instead?

  • The background service should only require local admin permissions on your console machine and access to your repository location, if not local to your PDQ Deploy console installation.
