You run the Lansweeper installer, and after a few minutes, you are scanning your network.  Out of the box, Lansweeper is installed using a predefined user for the database and the local system account for the services. 

For security reasons, company policy, or whatever reason, you want to change this and use integrated security instead.


  • Stop your Lansweeper scanning service
  • Stop your Lansweeper web service (IIS Express or IIS)
  • In SQL Server Management Studio, add a Windows account. 
  • Add the lansweeperuser schema to this account. 
  • On your scanning server(s), edit the Lansweeper service and change it to "Log on as" with the Windows account of your preference.
  • Edit the IIS Express service and change it to "Log on as" with the Windows account of your preference.
    • If you are using an IIS Server, you have to change the Identity of the Lansweeper AppPool and change that to the Windows account of your preference
  • Open the Config Editor, which you can find in C:\Program Files (x86)\Lansweeper\Tools on your Lansweeper server.
  • In the Service and Website tab edit the option "Integrated Security" and set it to True (see screenshot below).
  • Save the settings from the config editor. 

Do note that these are not the default installation settings for Lansweeper.

If you run an update, these settings will remain valid but with a new install, or a reinstall of a Lansweeper component, the default installation settings will be applied and the integrated security setup needs to be repeated.
