Nov 5, 2010 at 5:10 PM

Can you expain what yo are using SuperUserAcc and SuperReadAcc for? I see them in the SetInputs but you so not have any use in the script yet.

Yes, they are now actually in the latest script - for some reason the code that uses them didn't make it into the previous changeset, but should be there now both in latest changeset as well as the .zip download).

Hi Rick, this Technet article gives a pretty good overview of what the Super User and Super Reader accounts are:

As I understand it, the SuperUser and SuperReader accounts are configured per web application. In the script I see only one set of accounts used. What if I whant different account for each webapplication?

Hi Paul,

The same accounts can and will be used for all of the Web Applications. There is no reason to specify separate accounts per Web Application.

That's correct; these are not "service accounts" in the classic sense so there'd be no benefit as far as I can see to use different super user and super reader accounts for different web apps.
