Why and in what case we need to add computer object into local admins group?

Dear experts,

I'm in the middle of deploying SCCM env where there was one step to add the cm server into local admins group. I can't figure out what we would need to do so? what is the goal and after this object has been added into local admins group, what it does?

Thanks a lot.

    Why, because it need to be full admin on the servers in question.
    As for the case, this is covered within the docs. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/mem/configmgr/

    Exactly what problem are you trying to solve?

    Hi @Eaven HUANG ,

    Agree with above answers. We need to grant the site server’s computer account the full admin permissions to perform the installation.

    For more detailed steps about SCCM installation and configuration, please refer to below guide:
