Enterprise Vault Services run under Managed Service account

Hi

I have been asked to consider using AD Managed Service Account for execution of EV Windows Services

More information on how this is achieve is in the blog below.

I have checked EV documentation and nowhere it mentions if "Managed Service Account" are supported or not.

Can all you EV buffs out there, please help me with this query? I don't believe it supports but a second opinion would be good before I get back to the client with a Yay or Nay answer.

Regards

I don't know if we have a document explicitly stating it, but I cannot imagine this would work for the Vault Service Account. The article you linked specifically states that a Managed Service Account is not able to logon interactively, which would make it a dealbreaker as a VSA.
