v2 beta: question about managed accounts section

Feb 10, 2011 at 3:23 PM

A question about the v2 beta:

what accounts are actually being referred to with "DOMAIN\spservice" and "DOMAIN\content03"?

            <ManagedAccount username="DOMAIN\spservice" Password="" CommonName="spservice"/>
            <ManagedAccount username="DOMAIN\content03" Password="" CommonName="searchservice"/>

Keep up the amazing work!

CommonName="spservice" refers to the generic farm app pool account (for lack of a better name).

CommonName="searchservice" is for the Enterprise Search Service account.

Look out for improvements to these in the near future, the current naming and the way the accounts are listed in the XML could use a bit of brushing up.

Thanx for the clarification!

By the way, can the CommonName be changed? Or does the script need that untouched...

Currently, CommonName must be left as-is, as the script expects it to be a certain value. This may change in the near future though.
