Change user in HP SIM


Anyone know how to change username (serviceaccount) in HP SIM.
I know the command mxpassword -g to change password for MXHPSIMServicePassword
and change MXDbUserPassword.
But if I want to change the user who runs the HP SIM service.
How to change that?
Which config files should I change in.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Change user in HP SIM

Hi Micke,

Just edit this file:

C:\Program Files\HP\Systems Insight Manager\config\globalsettings.props

You should find the parameter WindowsServiceUserName near the end of the file.
