SPS 2010 - SharePoint 2010 VSS Writer Under Network Service Account RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi there!

    I am using SC DPM 2012 for protection of the SharePoint 2010 and would like to configure SharePoint 2010 VSS Writer to run under Network Service account.

    Could you please advise how to do it?

    Many thanks in advance!

  • What account is the VSS writer currently using on your servers?

  • In other working scenario it is using the NETWORK SERVICE. Currently it is using the LOCAL SERVICE. This is a troubleshooting which I picked up from somebody esle. When I am trying to register it back or un-register with stsadm -o registerwsswriter and stsadm -o registerwsswriter I am getting the following error:

    Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

    I would highly appreciate if you also would point me out on where should I look into more logs?
