Got R2? Never Create A Regular Service Account Again

Okay, this isn’t strictly troubleshooting, but I DID have trouble creating my first MSAs in my R2 Active Directory, so I thought I’d save you a little digging.

from the quick launch, you need to do an import-module activedirectory

New-ADServiceAccount -name msa-SQLsvc -path "cn=managed service accounts,dc=deuby,dc=net"

what kind of rights do you need?
