TOAD & Removal of Admin Rights on WindowsXP


#1

Apologies…I know I’ve seen threads on this before, but the search future in
Yahoo! Groups is the pits (or I don’t know the right way to do it).

My company is thinking of taking Administrative Rights away from all users on
WindowsXP workstations.

How do the Quest products installed with TOAD react to this? Does the install
work successfully? Any limitations or problems while using the products?

Anyone have any other general pieces of helpful information that has gone
through this?

Since no one replied yet I’ll take a stab.

If you are using a new version of Toad (I think 9.7 and up) you
shouldn’t have any problems because all user stored info is saved under
your “Documents and Settings\user…” folder in which you will have
permissions to write to.

If you are installing Toad after your administrative restriction is in
place I’m pretty sure you would need someone with administrative
privileges to install it.

That was my impression too.

Admin rights required for installation, but that’s it. Usage of Toad
should be A-OK w/o admin privs.

One thing that has come up in the past with limited privileges has been connectivity issues. Specifically SQLNet connectivity, out of Toad’s domain. Be sure you have all of the privileges needed for Oracle SQLNet connectivity and you should be fine.

Would that be like a firewall thing on the SQLNET port, or permissions on
OCI.DLL?

General directory/file permissions
