Group Managed Service Accounts

You can add a credentials record for a Group Managed Service Account (gMSA) that you plan to use to run guest processing tasks. Note that before you add a record you should check requirements and limitations and perform actions described in section Using Group Managed Service Accounts.

To add a new credentials record with the gMSA:

  1. From the main menu, select Credentials and Passwords > Datacenter Credentials.
  2. Click Add > Managed service account.
  3. In the Username field, enter a gMSA that you want to add. Note that the name of the account must be specified in the following format: DOMAIN\User or
  4. In the Description field, enter a description for the created credentials record. As there can be a number of similar account names, for example, gmsa01, it is recommended that you provide a meaningful unique description for the credentials record so that you can distinguish it in the list. The description is shown in brackets, following the user name.
