We have installed Web8 recently. There is requirement we need to replace the local MTSUser with an Active Directory MTSUser. What configuration change we need to do for this update??
Answer of Dominic is correct but incomplete. Here is the complete list as far as I am aware:
- Update MTSUSer credentials of
SDL Web Content ManagerCOM+ app
- Update MTSUSer credentials in
- Search Query Engine Settings
- Indexer Service Settings
- Batch Processor
- Update MTSUser in
- Grant MTSUSer access to the
- Update MTSUSer in
- Or add as new user as Administrator, optionally set to Predefined to hide user
- Add MTSUSer to
- Grant MTSUser the following file/folder permissions:
%ProgramData%\SDL\SDL Tridion\External Content Library: "Read,Write"
In Web 8, the services generally run as
Network Service, so you shouldn't need to change anything there.
You will need to change the identity of the SDL Web Content Manager application in COM+ as in this screen capture. (Note that my "MTS User" is called tridionsys)
The other thing you'll need to be aware of is that during installation, some of the settings in in the SDL Web configuration file are encrypted, and the key pair needed to decrypt these is associated with the Windows account used for the installation. Details of this can be found here.
If you consult the documentation for aspnet_iisreg, you will see that it is possible to export the keys from one account and import them to another.
I think that's all, but if anyone knows of something else, please jump in.
