Local System or Domain Account for Agent Service
Our SCP management server is already in place and is using a domain account for it's services.
When installing the agents, should I use this same service account, or can I just allow it to use a local system account?
Typically I would use a domain service account for such things, but often it's required for authentication. Since the agent install gives an option, I'm not sure if a domain account is required.
I ask this question because we have several windows agents that were installed using the local system account and if I can avoid it, I would like to leave them this way.
Is there a valid reason I should change the agents to use a domain service account?
If so, can I just reconfigure the agent services and cycle them or do I have to uninstall and then re-install each agent?
