About Recast Proxies

A Recast Proxy is a service that runs under a service account. 

Proxy Types

User Proxies are automatically installed with your standard Right Click Tools installation. The User Proxy ensures that actions run in Right Click Tools will run as the logged in user with the logged in user's permissions. User Proxies do not appear on the Proxies list.

Service Account Proxies are useful when you want to run actions as a service account. These can also be used to run actions against untrusted domains. Install these proxies using the Recast Proxy MSI available in the Recast Portal.

Proxy Uses


Different ConfigMgr and Active Directory permissions are required depending on which tasks you're using the Recast Proxy for. See Proxy Service Account Permissions.


Service account proxies can be installed when installing the Recast Management Server. The Recast Proxy must be deployed separately, after Recast Management Server installation, if the proxy is being installed on a server other than the Recast Management Server. See Install Recast Proxy Separately.

You can also install a Recast Proxy after on the same server as the Recast Management Server.

Proxy Configuration

You can configure a Recast Proxy to run actions as a service account or to manage tasks, such as populating scopes.
