Forefront Protection 2010 for SharePoint managed account RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all!

     

    I would like to ask if some issues may occur with FPSP after configuring of farm account as managed account in CA.

    The OS is Windows 2008 R2

    SharePoint 2010 is installed. FPSP is installed. 

    Will FPSP still work correctly after switching of farm account to managed account?

  • Hi,

     

    Thank you for the post.

     

    The account used to install FPSP should be entered using the Domain\Account format when the server is part of a domain. This account must be a member of the Local Administrators group on the SharePoint server and have SharePoint Farm Administrators privileges. If SharePoint is configured to connect to the database using Windows authentication, this account must also be a member of the SQL Sysadmin role on the database server.

  • Thank you.

    that is clear- FPSP account uses farm account.

    What happen if farm account will be switched to managed account (will change the password itself).

    Will FPSP Windows service change password automatically?

    “What happen if farm account will be switched to managed account (will change the password itself).” -  as far as I know, this was not a configuration that was tested, and thus would not be supported at this time.
