Can sassrv be configured to use a Windows Group Managed Service Account?

[ Edited ]

Hi,

 

My IT persons asks if SAS 94M5 can be configured to let service accounts like sassrv use something called Windows Group Managed Service Accounts. Is this possible? If so, how?

 

Regards,

Bart

Hello,

I had an issue last Thursday getting the following message 'the sassrv user name or password is incorrect”.  The server is Microsoft Server 2012 R2 and the user sassrv is a domain windows account.The issue was not resolved and we restored the full image backup plus the SAS Content backup in order to have an effective environment.Furthermore, we don't know if we will oppose the same issue in the future.

bheinsius,

It looks like a sassrv Group Managed Service Accounts is possible. I haven't tried this yet but seeing these accounts can run batch processes I don't see why they wouldn't work. I've requested an environment to test this scenario.

 

The account would still need the privileges defined in Launch Credentials
