Change the Timer Service Account

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
 
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 Workerbee09  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.

Is there PowerShell command to change service application account?

  

I associated User Profile Synchronization Service with managed account "svcebrd" in CA. For some reason this created duplicated managed account. Now there are two "svcebrd" under Configure Managed Account. If I try do delete one of the accounts in CA I get "key has already been added in dictionary". Running Remove-SPManagedAccount fails with "The account Dev\svcebrd is still being used by ... User Profile Syncronization Service".

Does anybody know powershell command to changed service application account?

Search in SharePoint 2010 does not show results for all users other than the timer service account

  

I have setup a new SharePoint 2010 setup. Created Search Service application and configured. Confirmed that the crawl went fine without any error for both Local site and a file share. In the Search application i confirmed that the All Site scope shows 3890 items.

ISSUE: If any of the user [including site collection administrator] browses the site and try to search something it does NOT show result [No error either it says We did not find any results for .....]. All Site scopes does not show 3890 items but only 28.

But if the timer service account [system account] logs in the site and does the search it works fine.With this account loggd in if i check the All Site scopes i do see 3890 items.

This does seems to be some thing to do with the permission, but i am not able to get hint where the mistake is.

I have done the follow till now.

> I checked the application association is correct
> Created a new web application and confirmed that the issue exists there as well
> Checked ULS log but dont see any error related to this.
> No relavent event id in Application event viewer

Please help

Change Service Account for User Profile Service application

  

Hi,

I change service account for user profile service application from spfarm to spservice . and then FIM Synchronization Service is stopped and i found this error in event viewer.

"The server encryption keys could not be accessed.

User Action

Verify that the service account has permissions to the following registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Forefront Identity Manager\2010\Synchronization Service

If the problem persists, run setup and restore the encryption keys from backup."

But i tried to set the permission for spservice in registry. Still can't start the FIM Synchronization Service and also the log on as "Account" is changed to spservice .

When I change to spfarm for User Profile Service Application, it is working fine.

Please advise me that what do i need to configure for spservice ?

Thanks.

Timer in Web Service

  
Hi I have a web service (asmx). I want to add a functionality where in I have to do polling for data on a URL. I added a timer and in the timer elapsed event handler I am checking for the data. Is it a good design? Is there something better than timer for this in ASP.NET? I have a issue with this where in the site / IIS goes in ideal state because of no requests, I have posted it in other forum on how to solve this problem. What I wanted to verify is that, use of timer is a valid thing for my use case, or I should go for some other approach? Will it be too heavy operation for the service to have a timer of 5 minutes interval running in over there, which will be running for the lifetime of this application.  

SQL Agent - service account permissions - SQL Server 2008

  
Hi @ all   I installed two SQL Server 2008 on Server 2008 R2 Std (principal and mirror) and an AD Server 2008, with sperate service accounts, connect as SA, localy all works fine. I created some agent tasks (PowerShell, T-SQL), but I get some Error massages in the history, that service account of SQL Agent didn't have the permission to query a remote machine(access denied for wmi (HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED)) and linked database(SQLSTATE 42000 Error(7314)). The simple query with SA permissions on the remote machine works and the powershell scripts with the local domain user works too. But not with the SQL Agent. WHY?? Where ist the different between the user account permisions and service account permissions? Which settings are needed? Example: get-wmiobject -class win32_service -computername 192.168.xxx.xxx| where {$_.name -like '*SQL*'} Powershell Console: works                                     SQL Agent Job: access denied I tried some solutions with user rights, group policies and security permissions but nothing works. like: Configuration -Service Accounts, SQL Server or SQL Server Agent service account http://support.microsoft.com/kb/283811/en-us http://msdn2.microsoft.com/

User Profile Service account Write to AD Permissions

  
I followed this guide here (http://www.harbar.net/articles/sp2010ups.aspx) to provision the UPS service in sharepoint 2010. I found the guide very helpful and informative. Everything is working correctly except for the write back to AD I've followed the steps and have assigned the listed permissions to the UPS service account, however I still get permissiong errors in the FIM GUI Our AD is running in a 2008 environment but is in 2003 mode, so I made sure to add the UPS account to Pre Windows 2000 Compatible access built in group and restart the server so that the new group settings would take affect. Do I need to reprovision the UPS service or something? Or am I missing something completely. (Hopefully the latter lol!) Thanks RKB

Failed to change Farm Account in Sharepoint 2010 server, now Central Administration is not accessibl

  
Hello, I have a problem, that I no longer can access Central Administration Website, only the Sharepoint itself. I was running installation of Sharepoint 2010 Server with administrative account ImTheAdmin, who is a Domain Admin in the domain on one of the Windows 2008 R2 member servers. Besides that, I made ImTheAdmin the primary administrator of the Sharepoint. ImTheAdmin became the only user of this Sharepoint 2010 server after installation.  I installed everything on one box with default installation settings. I used builtin SQL server, not Standard or Enterprise. What then happened is: Using ImTheAdmin account, I opened Central Administration Website, and it said, that I need to change the Farm Account, for the account for Farm was the default one (I think it was network service). So I created a regular domain user MYDOMAIN\SharepointFarmAccount. The account name was too long to be as a Windows 2000 name, so it showed there without last 't', e.g. MYDOMAIN\SharepointFarmAccoun. I thought, Windows 2000 is long gone, so I didn't pay much attention, I think everywhere the account SID is important. I don't know if that is the real problem with my failure later, but it might be one of the reasons. I put MYDOMAIN\SharepointFarmAccount down in to the form of Central Administration Website, added the check mark, that it would react to password changes, and pre

WCF Service Unable to Access Personal Certificate Store Unless Service Account is Logged In

  
I created a WCF service that has a method which makes a call to a SOAP web service over the internet. In order to make a call to the SOAP web service, it requires that an X.509 certificate be sent with the HttpWebRequest. The X.509 certificates are loaded in the Personal and Trusted Certificate store of the account which the service is running under. When the service account is logged into the server, everything works just fine. However, when the service account is not physically logged onto the server, it has problems loading up the X.509 certificate and fails authentication when trying to make the HttpWebRequest. I am new to WCF services so I don't even know where to start looking. Can anyone please help? Thanks in advance.

assigning spn to service account

  
I have installed MOSS 2007 to use Kerberos. Prior to the installation I assigned SPN HTTP/servername.domain to each of my service accounts: Farm Account, Content Pool, Shared Services Pool and Shared Services Account. I did this knowing that I would have to add / drop SPNs later, according to port numbers. (I followed guides by Scott Hillier and Martin Kearn). My question is: what specific service/app pool do I assign to these accounts? When all have the same generic SPN that I assigned originally everything works, but I receive KDC error #4 every 30 minutes or so. KDC error 4 states that there are 'multiple accounts with name HTTP/*****.*** of type DS_SERVICE_PRINCIPAL_NAME. I have been using trial and error in assigning variations of the HTTP service (using port numbers from my MOSS instance).Is there a better way? Because this is not working so well.

SPTrace service account requirements

  
Iam getting an alert that says my SPTraceV4 service is using a built in account.  I checked an sure enough it is using a local system account.  The problem is I can't figure out how to change the account in sharepoint - I tried manually changing the service in MMC to a domain account but this did not resolve the alert.  Does anyone know how to do this, and if I do have to do it manually, what rights & permissions this account needs? Thanks!  

How to change the System Account into Domain Administrator account in Sharepoint?

  
I'm attaching the captured image from the Central Admin of our Sharepoint Server.

Service Account for SQL Server 2000 Cluster

  
Dear All, One of my customer is running a active/active SQL 2000 cluster in Windows 2003 and the service account for one of the instance is LocalSystem account. I am not sure how they changed the service account to localsystem because SQL Server doesn't allow LocalSystem account as your service account when you install it on a cluster and it doesn't allow to change the service account to LocalSystem account in Enterprise Manager when running in a cluster. I searched for documentation to findout whether Microsoft supports running SQL Server using LocalSystem account in a cluster but I am unable to find a documentation. Please help me to identify the documentation regarding the support or share your experience Regards BalajiRegards,Balaji, Please mark as answer if you think this answers your questions
