  • I've followed something similar to this and it worked like a charm:


    Might want to look that over and see if that's clear enough to get the job done.

    In essence, you need to do the following:

    1. Create the new account in AD

    2. Add a managed account via Central Admin>Security>Configure Managed Accounts

    3. Configure the Service Account via Central Admin>Security>Configure Service Accounts. At this step you will select the Service you need to update then select the managed account you just added.
