DP Support for MS Group Managed Service Accounts

Status: Under Consideration

We are investigating support for gMSA in DP and DP4CW.

See status update history

Hello all,

this is a request to get support for MS Group Managed Service Accounts (gMSA)  - see also Group Managed Service Accounts Overview

DP is using Service Accounts on the Cell Manager and on Clients, that typically require frequent password updates.
The MS feature gMSA, introduced in Windows Server 2016, automates the password management of Service Accounts on multiple servers.

Passwords are fully managed by MS, allow the use of highly complex passwords and therefore increase the overall security on the managed systems.
