Microsoft FAST for SharePoint 2010 Local Security Groups

Microsoft FAST for SharePoint 2010 creates a local group called “FASTSearchAdministrators”. Members of this group are able to fully administer the FAST server farm.

An additional local group that can be created manually is the “FASTSearchKeywordAdministrators” group. Members of this group are able to administer FAST keywords.

    How did you find out about that group? 🙂

      It was really well hidden in the documentation 🙂 A lot of painful searching and reading through doco that had nothing to do with what I wanted – you know, the usual lol

    It´s FASTSearchKeywordAdministrators not FASTKeywordAdministrators. That´s why I couldn´t find it in the docs.

      Ahhhhh that makes sense! We don’t have any users really looking at keywords at the moment, so the people that do need to are already members of the FAST Search Administrators group anyway. But I’ve created the group on our environments regardless!

      Just reread your comment – sorry, I missed that I had put in the wrong group name. Post updated. Thanks!
