Who/what Changed AvDSAD & AvDSGlobalCatalog Log On As Service Properties?

Somehow my AvDSAD & AvDSGlobalCatalog's Log On As service properties were changed from the UnityDirSvc account to UnityInstall. This prevented us from adding new users to Unity.

The only change I can think of that I did was running the Permissions Wizard, but everything looked fine from what I saw. I ran it several times to make sure. I only caught this by looking at the secondary server's settings.

Does anyone know who or what could have changed these 'Log On As' service settings? I'm just afraid of this happening again.

Hi -

The Services configuration wizard can be used to change userid and password for the Unity services. A user with local administrator priviledges on the server could also go to My Computer on the server, right-click and select Manage, navigate to Services and change any service properties. You could review the Security event log to see if anyone logged on to your server?

I'm on the only admin of Unity, but when I asked 'who', I meant to ask, what Unity account could have possibly changed this. I checked all my logs, but could not find anything.

Like I mentioned earlier, all I did was run the Permissions Wizard several times. Oh well, I'll just have to monitor this. Thanks.
