Our Unity Service account is a seperate account from Exchange/W2K admins. We would like to change the password for the Unity Service account as soon as possible. Is there a defined process for this or is it as simple as changing the password in Active Directory? Thanks.<br><br>

I believe if you change the password while we're running it should be OK and the next time you restart the system we'll snag a new token with the new password... I haven't tried this myself and I don't have equipment to test it here. I've had site sthat have changed the password without realizing the trouble it would cause and there's not problem UNTIL they restart the system some days or weeks later (leading to all kinds of fun troubleshooting scenarios) so I'm reasonably sure we'll continue to operate OK through the process.
