Changing Service Accounts in SharePoint

One of the most common mistakes I see people making in SharePoint is attempting to change SharePoint Application Pool identities incorrectly. The proper way to change SharePoint Application Pool identities is as follows:

 

  1. Open SharePoint Central Administration
  2. Go to Operations > Security Configuration > Services Accounts
  3. Select ‘Web application pool’ > set ‘Web service’ to ‘Windows SharePoint Services Web Application’ > set ‘Application pool’ to the appropriate Application Pool.
  4. Enter in your appropriate information for ‘Select an account for this component’
  5. Click ‘OK’
