In a standard ADAM setup, the windows services all run under a dedicated user account (ADAMService). However, according to the mentioned ticket, by design, the user under which the Rest service is running should be a local administrator (only in case of https configuration). Most of IT departments do not appreciate these kind of requirements. Can the REST service make use of standard Windows mechanisms, so that user does not need to be a local admin? (e.g. non-admin users can be given permission full control on the specic certificate during install).
