Out Of The Box Sharepoint (?)

Configure service accounts: Application Pools

Filed under: Sharepoint — Peter Kruisman @ 10:49 am

Sharepoint2010 manages the service accounts in one place. This is a great plus but has some gotcha’s. 
Today I experienced a page not found after changing the application pool credentials from within IIS.

Although I used a managed account this action does NOT update the association in the Sharepoint service accounts configuration page. This results in the page not found error.
Use the Service Account page to associate a managed account with a service. Do not use IIS to configure services credentials.

Also do not delete such a managed account in AD. De-associate the account from services and then delete it.

Update – Gary Lapointe posting of the managed accounts complications
