We are planning to downgrade from Enterprise/Standard version of SQL Server to Developer Edition. We will move the existing system and user database to the Dev Edition.
Are we going to need to request for a new Service Account to be created for the SQL Services of the Developer Edition? The existing account was created by the previous DBA. The account details were not shared with us.
We are looking into two options that reuse the old account, but we will ask the security team to reset the password, or if it will be deleted when we downgrade we will request new accounts.
