Hi ,

      We have SQL Server cluster 2005 installed  on windows 2008 and for some reasons we would like to change SQL Server Services account to different user account to isolate some services .

     How can we change SQL Server services account as this user host SQL Cluster as well.?
   
     Thanks in advance.

We need to change the Accounts from SQL Server Configuration Manager for SQL Clusters. That is the recommended way on a cluster.

The below link has discussion regarding this and has the detailed steps:

You would need to perform the steps on each SQL Server (including clusters) using the SQL Configuration Manager as it sets the permissions and rights needed by that user account to start SQL Server.
