I am to replace admin user in replication agent(default agent on author) due to security policy issue.
I've created a user then put the user on administrators group.
Now I thought the user has proper privilege for replication.
Publishing contents operation was successful with the user.
However for "user activation" which means replicate a newly created user to publish instance, failed due to denied permission.
I should use another user but admin for replication agent.
Please advise. Thanks in advance.
Replication filters out few things like acl, password etc..
Need to Go to publish instance & assign the user to admin group Or create a package of the new user & activate it. After that you can use that in replication agent.
