Required Accounts RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I set up sharepoint, I followed the guidance on creating the service accounts:

    Setup User
    SQL Server Service
    Server Farm
    SSP App Pool
    SSP Service Account
    Windows SharePoint Services Search
    Search Default Content Access Account
    Search Specific Content Access Account
    User Profile and Properties Content Access Account
    Excel Services Unattended Service Account
    App Pool Identity

    I created a unique network account for each service above because our farm exists over three servers.  My IT dept asked if we can consolidate any of these accounts.  I can't find any information that says I can't just use 'two' sharepoint accounts (one admin one not) for all these services.

    Does anyone have suggestions?

    Thanks in advance!
