  • Comments 1

Thanks to a colleague of mine, here is how to do it using STSADM (all the PS 2007 Service Accounts were using the same account):

1.     Change the account password

2.     Open a command line prompt (Start -> Run -> cmd)

3.     Change directory wherever STSADM has been installed, typically:

 

Ø  cd "C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN"

 

4.     Execute the following two command:

 

Ø  stsadm -o updatefarmcredentials -userlogin DOMAIN\user -password NEWPASSWORD

 

Ø  stsadm -o updateaccountpassword -userlogin DOMAIN\USER -password NEWPASSWORD –noadmin

 

Ø  IISRESET

 

5.     Reboot the server
