Permissions to Administer SharePoint 2010

I’ve been reading some articles on how to set a user up as a SharePoint Administrator and noticed there is no consensus on which should be the steps to achieve it.

In our environment we follow these steps:

  • Add as local admin to the servers on the farm
  • Add to the farm administrators group
  • Add as powershell admin using the command: add-spshelladmin -username domain\user
  • Add user as DB_OWNER to the Config and to the content databases

See you,
