  • commvault Managed Service Accounts / Service accounts
    Posted: 12-11-2019, 6:13 PM

    Im Brand new to Commvault.   We have our Commvault Media server setup and our commvault/commcell server set up as well.  Using Win Server 2016 and commvault 11SP17.13

    I wanted to know recommendations with what services should have their own unique service account opposed to just using the "local system account"  Whats the recommendation or what is prefered? or is it better or recommended to use Group Manage Service accounts?   Please advise.

    In general an account is needed for almost all iDAs outside the file system as they would need specific permissions to access the application (SQL, Exchange, Oracle, etc) that the local service would not be able to.
