But when i went to central admin -->service accounts --> selected the dropdown credential mgmnt-> that service application pool for that unwanted service application pool was still showing up! how to remove that item from the dropdown?
when i tried to delete the spmanaged account :
An object in the SharePoint administrative framework, "SPManagedAccount Name=managed-account-S-1-5-21-266749940-1637964444-929701000-1532211", could not be deleted because other objects depend on it. Update all of these dependants to point to null or different objects and retry this operation. The dependant objects are as follows: SPIisWebServiceApplicationPool Name=SearchPool SPIisWebServiceApplicationPool Name=UserProfilePool SPIisWebServiceApplicationPool Name=UserProfileServiceAppPool
how can i Update all of these dependants to point to null ? can i do this using powershell?
