Impact of disabling / deleting EPO Admin Account.

Jump to solution

Hello,

I would like to ask if an AD account for a previous EPO Admin is disabled and deleted, would there be any impact to Server Tasks or configuration settings that were previously setup in EPO by the same admin account?

A previous EPO admin will be leaving my company and this person still has admin access to the EPO consoles. This person created Server Tasks and many other admin tasks over the years.

Authentication to EPO is based on AD accounts and credentials however AD is not using LDAP to connect to AD.

Is there anyway to determine if impact will occur?

Thank you.

Hello @Glenn_Bolton 

Thanks for your post.

For testing purpose you can try to disabled and check whether the server task is executing or not.

afaik, Once the account is disabled ideally the associated task shouldn't disabled.

If you want you can refer the below KB article as well:

Disabling user will not have any impact on server task. It will continue running but if we delete the user then associate server task also will be removed.

Thank you for your response. Much appreciated.

The answer I determined was this: Navigate to each Server Task that is currently owned by the disabled account and make the slightest change, such as a minor update in the "Description Field."

You will then become the owner of the Server Task.

Thank you.
