    Local account on Server Essentials

    I have a new client that wants Server Essentials on a server. Do I create a local user in addition to the administrator account? Should the server be logged into the local account?
    They will be managing the day to day operations. I would be a monthly check in.
    My server experience was Home Server.

    There are two main types of user accounts. Each type gives users a different level of control over the computer:

    Standard accounts are for everyday computing. The standard account helps protect your network by preventing users from making changes that affect other users, such as deleting files or changing network settings.

    Administrator accounts provide the most control over a computer network. You should assign the administrator account type only when necessary.

    I guess it'll depend on who will be doing all the setup etc....
