NOTE:  This information may be provided to customers on an "as needed" basis when the Change Network Account utility does not resolve an issue.  Sometimes established AD policies interfere with System Platform.  One example is the communication between platforms as required for deployment.  The Change Network Account utility does change some security policies that are needed for System Platform to function properly.
