Sharepoint - Add users (superusers) to Distributed Service account

Hi There

I was reading this MS Sharepoint article (http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff758656.aspx)  

on "superuser" accounts for Sharepoint. These two accounts are setup for the Distributed Cache Service.

What I want to do is remove the current farm account on the Distributed Cache Service. And add the two superuser accounts instead.

More info: http://www.gsoft.com/en/blog/configuring-administrative-service-accounts



In summary what I would like to know:

1. How to view service accounts for services such as Distributed Cache Service and App Fabric Cache service.

2. Change the accounts for these services and the super user accounts.

**If you read the above link you can see that there are two superuser accounts associated to the Distributed Cache Service.

**With relation to the first Microsoft article I have already created the super user account just need to add them to the distributed Cacher service.

If you require additional info please let me know.

Best,
J3di

Hi J3di,

the super user accounts are just configured - there is only one identity / Managed Account to run the Distributed Cache Service.

The Distributed Cache Service IS the AppFabricCacheService (thats the internal name of the service :-)
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj219613.aspx

You can configure / set the account with the following script:
$spFarm = Get-SPFarm
$cacheService = $spFarm.Services | where {$_.Name -eq "AppFabricCachingService"}
$newAccount = Get-SPManagedAccount -Identity "Yourdomain\Account"
$cacheService.ProcessIdentity.CurrentIdentityType = "SpecificUser"
$cacheService.ProcessIdentity.ManagedAccount = $newAccount
$cacheService.ProcessIdentity.Update()
$cacheService.ProcessIdentity.Deploy()

Open in new window


If you want to do more in this area, have a look on the Codeplex project "SPAutoInstaller".
https://autospinstaller.codeplex.com
With their scripts you can configure the whole SharePoint farm.
