User ID in Window Service

P: n/a
I have an app that runs 24/7 and does file transfers between network
locations and an IBM mainframe and network locations.

In order to do these transfers my Uid has write permissions to the various
network locations. The app is running on a dedicated machine under my login.

I have been asked to convert this to a windows service that can be run on
one of the PC in the control room. How can I apply a User id to a windows
service so that it can move files between private network locations.

Does the windows service have a user id of "SYSTEM" by default?

Thanks for any input.

Open the Service Control Manager and double click your service. Select the
"Log On" tabpage. There you can choose the service to run either using the
Local System account or you can specify any other account.

Yes. By default it runs under the Local System account
