Renaming EBS administrator account needs additional steps in SCE & SQL

Filed under: EBS — WITS-SR @ 6:52 pm

As EBS is unique in installing S.C.E as part of the installation sequence, it stamps SQL and other SCE credentials with the “administrator” account, before you can change the administrator account name.

Oliver Summer has a great blog on changing the administrator password located at http://dnn.ebsfaq.com/SCE2007/noalertsshowingupinSCE/tabid/1342/language/en-US/Default.aspx

if you follow those steps, and these additional ones you should be all set.

Goto Administration space\Security\Runas Accounts

Change the entry for the specific runas account by the user account name

Change the three data warehouse windows accounts –

Data Warehouse Action Account

Data Warehouse Report Deployment Account

Data Warehouse Configuration Synchronization Reader Account

In SQL, use the reporting service configuration tool

Select “Execution Account”

Update the execution account and/or password

Then go to

Microsoft SQL Server management Studio Express;

In object explorer go to “Security” “Logins” rename the domain\administrator to domain\newchangedaccountname

Restart SQL & SCE services.

Check the Applications events to ensure that there are no Error: 15404, State: 11
