Managing Team Foundation Server Services and Service Accounts
Visual Studio Team System Team Foundation Server includes several services and service accounts that run on either the data-tier server, the application-tier server, or both. You can use the same account for all of these service accounts, or you can use different accounts. For clarity, each service account is referred to separately by using placeholder names. This section describes how to manage those accounts.
