Change AD FS 2016 Service Account RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have recently set up AD FS 4.0 on a Win2016 Server. Accidentally I have setup this with the wrong domain account as service account. I'd like to change this one now, but under services this area is greyed out. I cannot even find on Google how I can afterwards change a service account. I have installed and removed AD FS several times, so I could do it once again, and at the next wizard configuration take care of the right account. But there must be a possibility of changing this account later on?

    kind regards,

  • I believe this still works for ADFS 2016: https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/Active-Directory-ddb67df0

  • Did you get the script to work? 

    I wasn't able to get it to work on my Primary ADFS server (2016) but worked on the secondary.
