Changing the Account Under Which a Windows Service Runs

In the Windows environment, the Siebel Analytics services run as Windows services. The Siebel Analytics Server service, for example, is initially configured to run as a local SYSTEM account, unless you are using the Siebel Analytics Cluster Server feature. If the service needs to access any remote machines, you must run it using a valid user ID and password with sufficient network privileges to access remote databases. This user ID must also have Windows Administrator privileges on the local machine.

To change the account under which a Windows service runs

  1. On the machine in which Siebel Analytics is installed, select Start > Settings > Control Panel.
  2. Open the Services applet by double-clicking the Services icon in the Control Panel.
  3. Select the Siebel Analytics service and click Startup. The Service dialog opens.
  4. In the Log On As portion of the Services dialog, select the option This Account and then click the button to the right of the text box. The Add User dialog opens.
  5. Select the user account in which you want the service to run, click Add, and then click OK.
  6. Enter the password for the user in the Services dialog, confirm the password, and then click OK.

The service is now configured to run under the new account. The next time you start the service, it will attempt to use the new account to start up the service.
