I'm thinking about using MSA (or gMSA) as proxies inside my SQL Server instances. This proxies would be used for example for running SSIS packages or
But based on what I've gathered there was a problem with using managed accounts inside credentials, because there was no way of providing password during creation of such credential.
Here is an old thread about SQL Server 2014: SQL Server 2014: Using gMSA for xp_cmdshell Proxy Account?
Few years have passed since then and I wonder if anything has changed and is there a way of creating proxies with managed accounts?
And if there isn't a way - what is currently considered "best practice" in creating such proxies? Does use of domain user instead of MSA is a good idea? Or maybe there is a way to abandon proxies altogether?
I don't know if I'm correct in my thinking but after an extensive search in world wide webs it seems like integrating SQL Server with a domain is looked over by most and not much information can be found.
