The first official non-BETA version of my Managed Service Account GUI tool is now available to download, and best of all it’s completely free!
A free tool for creating and editing Managed Service Accounts, with no Powershell knowledge required. What is a Managed Service Account? They are a special type of domain account in Windows Server 2008 R2 that can be used to run Windows services, but unlike normal domain accounts you don’t have to keep changing the password to keep things secure – Active Directory will take care of managing the password for you and communicating this with the computer that is using the Managed Service Account (you don’t even have to restart the services for the password change to take effect). Pretty useful, but unfortunately the only way to create and configure these accounts is via Powershell… until now.
