Follow me and learn Windows Server 2012 – Group Managed Service Accounts


Bruce here again, day 14 on my journey!  Tonight I’m studying Group Managed Service Accounts.  If you remember in 2008 r2 Microsoft introduced Managed Service accounts.  These provided us with a Service account that would provide automatic password management for a single account on a single server.  Microsoft has now improved on this feature by allow us to manage a single service account that can be used on multiple servers.  Now we can have a single identify that spans all of our services running on a server farm.  Below are some resources to help you learn more about gMSA.
