Shall we use same service account on DR as Production

Copper Contributor

I have a production SharePoint farm. Now I am planning to prepare DR farm. Do you think it would be better to create new service accounts for DR or use the same ones as Production?

Both Prod and DR are connected to same AD so the accounts will be available to both of them.

What is best practice in this case?

@FrankMartin1610 I would recommend to use separate accounts for different environments, especially when it comes to the security aspect. A dedicated service account should only possess the minimum necessary permissions.
