AOS Service Account in Microsoft Dynamics AX Object Server

The domain account or Network Service account the Microsoft Dynamics AX Object Server Windows service will runas. This account is used to communicate with the database server. Consider the following points when you select an account:

• It is strongly recommend that you use a domain account in a production environment. You should use the Network Service account only in development and testing environments.

• If the SQL Server and the AOS are on different computers, you must use a domain account.

• If you plan to install any Microsoft Dynamics AX components on a domain controller, you must use a domain account.

• If you plan to use Message Queuing (also known as MSMQ) for document exchange with web services on IIS, and you want to send signed messages, you must use a domain account. (If you are sending unsigned messages using web services on IIS, the AOS can run under the Network Service account.)
