Access Restriction Public


When changing the service account of the SQL server 2012 Browser, Connections to named instances of SSAS no longer work. 
This is because the new account is not automatically given the rights to read the related Registry entries.
In Previous versions of the product, the required access was granted automatically when changing the service account via Configuration Manager

I greatly apologize for the embarrassingly long delay in responding to this issue.

This is by design. The configuration manager will not update ACL for users set as the service account. It is expected that a user is manually setup with the correct permissions prior to being set as the service account. To determine what permissions are required, take a look at http://blogs.msdn.com/b/askjay/archive/2011/02/28/required-rights-for-sql-server-service-account.aspx
