SVNService as local service on windows 2003 server

Greetings,

Haven't seen this mentioned on the list (apologies if it has), and since a
lot of us have to run Subversion on Windows servers, you might be
interested to know that on Windows 2003 Server, SVNService will run
Subversion under the local service account, as opposed to the local
system account. Just give appropriate rights to your repositories
(or repository root) for this account, then change the account
SVNService logs on as: NT AUTHORITY\LocalService (no password)
Or if you use the browse button, select the local machine as location
and then enter: LOCAL SERVICE as the object name.

This I believe follows Microsoft recommend security practice:

http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=41312

Tested on both FSFS and BDB backends with hook scripts, emails, etc.

Also works on XP.

peace
si
