I've done lots and lots of searching and I cant seem to find a simple answer, I assume it is because everyone's circumstances differs however;
We need to setup a few SQL servers for production and I am not too sure which SQL service accounts to use. The servers will be running SQL 2012 and a few 2008 R2. They will be on a domain and the domain is in 2008 mode and not 2008 r2 (so no MSA accounts I assume).
Local System Account? Local User Account? Locally created user account? Network Account? Domain Account? Virtual Accounts (not too sure I understand these)?
The SQL server will be backing up to a non-domain NAS so I will need to pass certain credentials to it. I'd also like to know which account to use if it doesn't need to access a domain or an external none-domain NAS server.
Sorry if the question is 'too' newbie.
