By default, the Change Auditor Coordinator service runs as "Local System". Administrators may want to run the ChangeAuditor service as a Domain User or service account instead of "Local System".
The Change Auditor Service Principal Name (SPN) needs to be moved in Active Directory if the account used to run the Change Auditor Coordinator account is changed. If the SPN is not moved, the Change Auditor agents will not be able to connect to Change Auditor Coordinator and the following Warnings will be recorded:
