1. Start Active Directory Users and Computers.

2. Navigate to your service accounts OU. If you do not have an OU for service accounts, it is recommended to create one, so that service accounts can be managed in a distinct container from standard user accounts. Create an OU with an appropriate name, for example, Service Accounts.

3. In the Service Accounts OU, create the following accounts.

Full Name User Logon Name

SharePoint Administrator and Setup User

SP_Admin

SharePoint Farm Service

SP_Farm

SharePoint Service Applications

SP_ServiceApps

SharePoint Web Applications

SP_WebApps
