I couldn’t figure out why the GIS Server changes the password of my account by itself & when I tried to reset the password its working fine and after a while it changes again.
What might be the issue here?
Are you using Active Directory or LDAP for your user authentication for ArcGIS Server? And, are you using a network user to authenticate that has to change the password every XX number of days?
If so, then you will need to reapply the authorization (in the security tab) every time the password of this network user account changes. They recommend a "service account" were they password never expires (but getting an account like this from IT can sometimes be a challenge).
If this is not the case, can you give more detail on whether it is your account password that you are thinking is change or the Primary admin account?
May be a similar issue?? ArcGIS Server Manager Unauthorized Access 10.2.2
Thanks for answer, I’m not using a network user .
And I have no details about this, the user name & password changes suddenly
It’s similar to mentioned discussion but on (10.4.1) server
The username changes too? I'm at a loss unless it is something that is happening outside of the ArcGIS Server software.
Have you tried using the "Configure ArcGIS Server Account" utility to see if that helps or gives you any info? (half way down the page)
The ArcGIS Server account—Installation Guides (10.4.1) | ArcGIS Enterprise
If you haven't already, I would save a the config file with the primary account info. It usually prompt you as to whether you want to save and/or use existing when installing. Not sure if the utility does the same.
It may be time to put in a tech support call to see if they have seen this before. There maybe something else on your machine that is causing aconflict.
