Default Making changes on BES using different account?

Please Login to Remove!

I've got a dumb question:

Some time ago I thought I read that it is not recommended to make changes in BB Manager on a BES using a login different from your BB service account. Is this true? I've always RDP'ed into the BES with the BB svc account but when other admins here make changes, it's hard to get them to do the same. I thought about changing the local sec policy to only allow local admin acct and the bb svc (domain acct) login.

Our admins (myself included) all have BlackBerry Manager installed on our desktop computers and log in as ourselves... never the BES service account.

Where did you read that this is not recommended? I've never heard of such a thing.
