Hosting the repository database on a different server from the one
where your server process runs is discouraged. There are several ways
things can break, resulting in (at best) the service not running or
(at worst) repository corruption.

You shouldn't be running a service as a domain admin in the first
place, and yes it's possible that you still have permissions issues
even though you're using it.
