MainBoss Service needs to access the MainBoss database. This means that MainBoss Service's login name must be granted SQL Server permissions on the database. To grant these permissions, you must be logged in under a login name that has Windows Administrator privileges and SQL Server Administrator permissions on the instance of SQL Server that manages the MainBoss database.

If you are running MainBoss Service under a system account like Network Service, the account may already have appropriate SQL Server permissions. If so, you can skip this step. Otherwise, start MainBoss and go to Administration | MainBoss Service | Configuration. In that window, click Grant Service SQL Permission. This gives appropriate SQL Server permissions to the login name associated with MainBoss Service.
