In the docs under "Correct the user selected during Windows installation" it states:
"you can go into the Windows Service
Control Manager and specify the
correct information, as long as you
have not started Splunk yet. If you
have started Splunk, you must stop it,
uninstall it and reinstall it."
Can anyone elaborate on why you'd have to reinstall? Does the account get embedded in the configs somewhere in addition to the windows service? I have an install that was done months ago using the local system account, and I'd like to change it to use a domain account. Assigning all the needed permissions and rights shouldn't be a problem.
