  1. From the navigation pane, click Databases > Sql Server > instance.

    The instance details page appears

  2. In the General section, click Edit.

    The Edit dialog box appears.

  3. Select the account to use.

    • To use the system account, select Use local system account.

    • To use a specific account, select Impersonate user, and then in the Username and Password boxes, type the user credentials.

The software uses the updated credentials for the next backup operation or restore operation.
