If you did not specify a unique service account during the initial setup, Patch Manager creates a local service account to start the EminentWare Data Grid Server service. 

If you decide to change the account used to start the service, log in to the Patch Manager server and do the following:

  1. Verify that the service account exists.
    1. Open the Control Panel and double-click Local Security Policy.
    2. Select Local Policies and double-click User Rights Assignment.
    3. Double-click Log on as a service.
    4. In the Properties window, verify that the service is listed in the Local Security Setting tab.
  2. Verify that the targeted Network Access policy is disabled. 
    1. In the Local Security Policy window, select Security options.
    2. If the server is running Windows Server 2003, double-click Network access: Do not allow storage of credentials or .NET Passports for network authentication and verify that Disabled is selected.
      If the server is running Windows Server 2008 or 2012, double-click Network access: Do not allow storage of passwords and credentials for network authentication and verify that Disabled is selected.
  3. Verify that the service account has Full Control on the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\EminentWare registry key.
  4. Verify that the service account is in the local Administrators group.
