Managed Service Accounts

I have been setting up a new development server Hyper-V VM and having trouble with configuring managed service accounts which in principle sound like a good way to go. After much struggling and frustration with the (pretty poor) technet doco I finally found an excellent blog post and tool which got me back on track.

The blog post can be found at the follow link below:

And the tool can be downloaded (for free!) here:
