Install SCCM LAB Create domain service accounts. For “System Center Configuration Manager” (SCCM) deployment we need create some domain service accounts.

For successful LAB installation, we need 1 SCCM account (client and apps installation) and 3 SQL accounts (agent, service, reporting services). In this post, I show step by step “User” and “Oragnization Unit” “Active Directory” (AD) object creation, but create all four accounts.

1. Login to your “Domain Controller“, Left Mouse Button click on “Start” button, in apps list find “Windows Administrative Tools“;

2. Next click on “Active Directory Users and Computers“;

3. Before user creation we need create some “Organization Unit” (OU). Right Mouse Button click on domain name, click “New” and select “Organization Unit“;

4. Give it name “Service Accounts” and click “OK” button;

5. Next create another OU’s to divide service accounts by service. Right Mouse Button click on OU from step “4“, click “New” and select “Organization Unit“;

6. Enter name for OU (“SQL“) and click “OK“;




7. Repeat step “5” and create another OU “System Center“;

8. Let’s create AD object – “User“. In this post, I create service account for SCCM. Right Mouse Button click on OU “System Center“, click “New” and select “User“;

9. Enter “First name“, “Last name” and “User logon name” (using your naming policies). Click “Next” button;

10. Enter password, uncheck mark “User must change password at next logon” and set check mark “Password never expires“. Click “Next” button;

11. Click “Finish” button;

12. If all right you will see newly created user;

13. Repeat steps to create another three accounts for SQL it “SQL OU“;
