Site address connection accounts are used to authenticate the sender communication between sites. By default, the site server's computer account is used to connect to a destination site. Alternatively, you can define a user account, with permissions to the destination site, to be used when connecting to the destination site.

You must have Modify permission for the site security object class or instance to perform this procedure.

To set the site address connection account

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System Center Configuration Manager / Site Database / Site Management / <site code> - <site name> / Site Settings / Addresses.

  2. In the results pane, right-click the address that you want to modify the site address connection account for, and then click Properties.

  3. On the General tab of the site address properties, click Set and enter the account information for the site address to use when communicating with the destination site. The user account must be in the form of <domain\user>.

  4. Enter and confirm a password of up to 14 characters for the address connection account, and click OK.
