Change the default content access account (Search Server 2010)

 

Applies to: Search Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-03

The default content access account is used to crawl all content. Any content that a content source specifies to which the default content access account does not have access requires a separate crawl rule. To limit the number of crawl rules, use a default content access account that has access to as many content sources as possible.

Use the following procedure to change the default content access account.

To change the default content access account
  1. Verify that the user account that is performing this procedure is a service application administrator for the Search service application for which you want to change the default content access account.

  2. On the SharePoint 2010 Central Administration Web site, in the Application Management section, click Manage service applications.

  3. On the Manage Service Applications page, click the Search service application for which you want to change the default content access account.

  4. On the Search Service Application: Search Administration page, in the System Status section, locate the default content access account, which is in the form Domain\UserName.

  5. Click the default content access account name. The Default Content Access Account dialog box appears.

  6. Type the new domain user account information into the Account box and the password into the Password box, and then click OK.

The Search Service Application: Search Administration page refreshes and the new default content access account item is displayed.
