Hi Guys


One of our Domain admin account was keep locking itself out. the reason was being incorrect passwords recorded in the Windows Credential Manager service on the BES

We updated the password of the account and it resolved the problem.


Please can you guys advise if it is a requirement to retain credentials in the windows credential manager service? Or can this is cleared out


Please Advise


Kind Regards

This is not needed. You would normally use this to store credentials for automatic login (e.g. automatic login to a web site (via IE) or to a remote desktop).


I would not use this on a server for security reasons. I have it enabled on my Windows 7 client, though.
