I'm new to SharePoint Foundation and have a question regarding service accounts. I did not configure any service accounts and now I receive the following message:
"The server farm account should not be used for other services." Failing Services: SPTimerService (using the Network Service account).
I want to change this and found that I can do so under the credential management section. Do I need to select the Farm account for the service to change (I don't see the SPTimerService listed)? I setup a new domain account to use for this but my only options under "Select an account for this component" are Network Service and Local Service.
I read the following technet article but it doesn't really explain much: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff805056.aspx
If I use my new domain service account does it need any specific priviledges assigned to it in SharePoint before I add it?
