Part 4 describes the configuration of Config Mgr Service Accounts
Two service accounts are required - note that they can be the same domain account
1. Client Push Installation account
Select Administration/Site Configuration/Site
On top ribbon choose Client Installation settings
Select Accounts tab
Click Orange Star to configure Client Push Installation account. This account must be local administrator on all client devices. This can be achived by using Active Directory Restricted Groups (athough some customers just use a Domain Administrator account - not best practice)
Select the option to Enable automatic client installation when a computer is discovered via Config Mgr.
2. Network Access Account
Select Configure Site Components on the ribbon
Select Software Distribution Component
Configure the Network Access account. This is a regular domain account and is used in Operating System Deployment and Software Distribution to connect to the Distribution Point (otherwise the SCCMServer$ account is used and by default cannot connect to the DP).
This account requires "Access this computer from the network" rights on the DP (which it will have by default).
