System Account Locked to My Personal Account
When I set up Sharepoint I set up a local account for Sharepoint administration. When I would log it would come up as "System Account".When I logged in as me Sharepoint would show my name.In troubleshooting a problem with AD directory authentication I seemed to have attached my personal account to the System Account.I know this because when I log in with my account it thinks I am the "System Account". This means that when I do anything the information stamp shows that the change was made by "System Account", not me.Does anyone know how I fix things, so that my personal account comes up the way it did before?

Hi Frank,It depends on exactly what happened, but a likey place to look is Central Administration > Application Management > Policy for Web Application > Choose the Web Application from the Drop Down > Check the Box Next To your Name > Choose Edit Permissions of Selected Users > UnCheck Account operates as System...System accounts will not be recorded in the User Information lists unless the account is directly added to the permissions of the site. Any changes made by a system account will be recorded as made by the system instead of the actual user account. Cheers,-IvanIvan Sanders My LinkedIn Profile, My Blog, @iasanders.
