Rename SAPService supported?

Hi there,

we have a customer request for renaming the user SAPService<SID>, because of their naming conventions. I've searched for a while, but haven't found any actual information, if SAP supports this action or not. And if they would, I don't have an idea how to perform the renaming.

I assume it would take a lot of actions to have a clean rename? So just renaming it in the AD wouldn't be enough, right?

    Hi,

    SAP does not support the usage of alternative users than SAPService<SID> and <SID>adm. It is mentioned in SAP Note 2273782.

    I don't think this is supported. An exception will have to be made in your organizational conventions if you have to run SAP.

    This is not supported.

    The user SAPService<SID> gets its environment from <SID>adm. If you run a SAP service under different users, for example Local System, you have to take care of the environment. That's just one problem. Your SAP instance will start with different user credentials, but later on, for example in TMS (transport management) you will run into problems.

    Do not rename this user.

    Best regards,

    no.

    It is not possible. Tell the customer to change his naming convention.
