If, during the installation process, you do not specify a desired user account to
start the repository server, you are still allowed to change a different user account from
the Repository Server Control Panel dialog box.
Do the following to change user account to start the repository server with
different user credentials:
Open the Repository
Server Control Panel dialog box.
On the toolbar, click Options...
The Options dialog box appears.
In the Repository Server Run As User panel, you may choose
among two types of accounts to start the repository server.
- Local System Account: (Default)
A predefined local account used by the service control manager. This account
has privileges on the local computer,
as the computer on the network, but might have limited
network access rights
- This account: Specify a local
user account, or a domain user account. Ensure that the account belongs
to the administrator group of the given machine to allow the Repository
Server service to start successfully.
- A local user account has the following name format:
".\username"). For example:
- A domain user account has two possible name formats: the
distinguished name of the user object in the directory, and
- Password: Enter a password for the account
- Confirm Password: Retype the password.
Tip: Click the Reset button on the dialog box
to restore all modified fields to their default settings.
Changing the user account automatically restarts the repository server. All
access to the server is temporarily disabled while the server restarts. Server
requests made during this time will be rerouted to a replication server, if one is available.
If user credential verification fails when starting
the repository server service, ensure that you password is correct, or the
specified user account has permission to start the service.
In the confirmation dialog box, click Yes.
The repository server is restarted successfully with new user credentials.
