How to: Manage the Service Account or Authentication for Team Foundation Server Proxy

You may want to change the service account for Team Foundation Server Proxy (TFSProxy) or update the password, if you are using an account that requires a password. You can also switch authentication settings from NTLM to Negotiate (Kerberos). If you use specify Negotiate (Kerberos), authentication is first attempted with Kerberos authentication, which is more secure. If that fails, authentication falls back to NTLM.

Required Permissions

To perform this procedure, you must be a member of the Administrators security group on the computer that is running Team Foundation Server Proxy.

To change the service account

  1. Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Microsoft Team Foundation Server 2010, and then click Team Foundation Administration Console.

  2. Click Proxy Server, and then click Change Account.

    The Change Proxy Service Account window opens.

  3. Perform one of the following steps:

    • To specify a system account, click Use a system account, and then click a system account in the list.

      If your server belongs to an Active Directory domain, the default choice for the system account to use is Network Service. If your server belongs to a workgroup, the default choice is Local Service. Depending on the details of your deployment, the default choice might be the only available choice.

      NoteNote

      System accounts do not have user-managed passwords. If you specify a system account as the service account for Team Foundation Server Proxy (TFSProxy), you should not specify a password.
