The CommonNames of ManagedAccounts

Sep 27, 2011 at 9:01 AM


By default, there are 4 managed accounts, each with a static CommonName. But in the code, i found only reference to the "spservice" managed account.

My really question is about the "searchservice" account. We already need to set the search service account in the Enterprise section. Why setting a common name for this account if we also need to specify it after ?

I'd also like annotation about the needs for the accounts. We're setting up distinct farms - for example, MySites will be in their own farm, so most farms don't need a MySite app pool account; but until I go in and hack out the bits that require it, I'm stuck putting one in.
