I did an install with Sharepoint 2010 RTM and have it working well but when I checked the Monitoring - Review Problems and solutions it states a security concern that the Farm Account should not be used for other services. At this stage I have to change
out the timer service since it is using the farm account. But I don't see the timer service in the "Security - Manage service Accounts" location. I created a timer account with no problems but how does one go about changing the timer service
to use this account? I know I can go to services and change it there but I am wondering if there is a need to do this within Sharepoint? Am I missing a credential management piece that did not show up in the list of services?
Any help would be appreciated
By the way,
The problem points to a failing service SPTimerService (SPTimerV4) but its started and working cause I can see services being started and history of the service where it was successfull.
