I just wanted to put the question out there out of curiosity.
We perform scheduled gateway backups on a network drive.
We’ve been using the Ignition.conf file for the service account credentials successfully for about a year. (Detailed here: Mapping a Network Drive - Ignition User Manual 8.0 - Ignition Documentation)
After Windows update KB5003197, we started getting “Access is Denied” errors when trying to perform the backup. We could occasionally get it to work for us, but it ultimately failed.
We ended up configuring the Ignition Service log on properties in Windows and used the credentials that way. (As described here: Scheduled Backups doesn't seem to run - #8 by witman)
That seems to work for us (time will tell).
Is there any reason that this works better than the Ignition.conf file?
