Hi Laurent, 

Thank you so much for your time and valuable advise. Now i understand the Permission requirement as per your provided article. Upgrade looks not possible very soon. Hence advise which places Splunk uses these service account after installation..so for now at list i can replace the old account with new service account.

I have created a service account with same permission as existing one.

Thanks once again for your time !

Hi,

I believe you will find some good information here: https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/8.1.0/Installation/ChoosetheuserSplunkshouldrunas
Maybe the best would be to upgrade your version if you can to a supported version (I know that it's not always possible when working in some companies) and probably be able to change the user at that point when doing the upgrade.

Let me know if that's working/helpful.

Regards

Laurent
