"Correct" way of changing service accounts?

Post by pkelly_sts » Jan 06, 2017 9:23 am

I'm prepping the final stages of a Domain Migration & the Backup server is the last element to move (all proxies etc. have already been migrated).

The main Veeam services run under a domain account in the current domain, is there any specific way I should (or shouldn't) modify these (to the replacement account in the new domain) or can I simply edit the services themselves & just switch them manually?

Hi Paul,

Yes, you can edit service accounts manually, but make sure that new accounts are local admins and have sufficient permissions to connect to the SQL Server that hosts Veeam backup server database. Here is a required permissions document for your convenience > Veeam Backup & Replication permissions

Thanks!
