we are using ClearCase here (version 7.0.1), and the ClearCase WebServer is installed on a box different from the ClearCase VOBs and Views servers.
The box used is also hosting another application and audit/IT security here have questionned the fact that the Clearcase administration account (which is a generic account, even if I am the only one knowing the password) is also a local Admin account on the Windows box (the box is a Windows 2003 SP2 Server).
I would think that as I may need to do ClearCase upgrades on the Server, I need admin rights on this box (but I am not even so sure, as everything is eclipse-based in "web" ClearCase), but that can probably be done under my own name.
OTOH, they may be ClearCase actions (Web views administration ?) that may require being the clearcase administrator with privileged access on the box.
All in all, I am not sure at all, I will probably contact IBM to ask them but I thought I would asked here as well.
PS: I was not sure to ask this question on SO or SF. But as this has nothing to do with source code management, but everything to do with managing the ClearCase application servers themselves, I choose it to be my first SF question. :-D
