In the Aspera Service Account dialog, enter the name of the user account to run Aspera services. By default, the user name is svcAspera.
If the machine is not joined to a Windows domain, you need only a local user, such as the default svcAspera, to run Aspera services. If the local account does not exist on the system, enter new credentials and click Next. The account is then created automatically. If the account already exists, enter the existing account password and click Next.
If the machine is joined to a domain, or you need to support requirements No. 2 or No. 3 from the following table, the type of account specified varies. See the following table for options. If the server is configured to accept the domain user login, use a domain account that has been added to the local administrator's group to run the services. You must create this domain account on the domain controller first.
