      17. You may choose between Windows authentication mode and Mixed Mode in the Database Engine Configuration box. Choose the one that will fit your setting the best; descriptions are underneath.

        • If you want to use a SQL Server account to authenticate Secret Server to your SQL Server instance, you must use Mixed Mode (for easier setting). If you are putting up a test or demo setup, we advise utilizing mixed mode. You will also need to create a password for the SQL Server system administrator (sa) account if you choose this option. For information on how to add more users, go to the section below titled Adding a SQL Server User.
        • Windows Mode: This will block SQL Server account authentication (recommended for optimal security). Windows Mode is suggested for use in production settings. Your SQL instance's administrative access will be granted to whichever user or group is designated. Best Security Practices recommend keeping this number of users as low as feasible.
      18. Please take note that if you select Windows Mode, you will also need to create a service account in order to operate the IIS Application Pool(s) for your Thycotic product after installation.
