12. Next, you need to configure the Pipeline Host Service with user credentials in order to allow Centro to reach the network drives that store your CAD Data. Once the new credentials have been applied you should restart the service for the change to take effect and then test a Pipeline in the Pipeline Manager to formally confirm it’s success.

NOTE: Any time the Pipeline Host Services is restarted the Pipeline Manager Service must also be restarted.
See Services Configuration for Windows to set up dependencies for services.
