Password Change

I've seen previous posts on the subject of service a/c password changes but I still require some clarification on this.<br>In control panel services I see the 'AV' services that are using the account with which I installed Unity - I presume I can change the passwords here.<br>The services that have an 'exchange' prefix are also using this a/c(I installed exchange with the same a/c) - again I can change the password here. <br>Do I need to change the password anywhere else, i.e at site, configuration level in exchange(exchange admin a/c). I'm worried that I may change the wrong password which may affect the email system. When I joined the exchange site with the Unity exchange install I used the a/c the AV services are using , I did'nt use the Exchange admin a/c.<br>Apologies if this is confusing.<br><br>thanks<br><br>Jeff<br><br>

Re: Password Change

You should be using the Exchange Admininstrator to change any passwords for the Exchange services. Not a good idea to be doing the Exchange service changes from the Control Panel. Microsoft recommends doing that only if running on a clustered server.
Please check out the help for the Exchange Admin and look for "passwords: service account" in the index.

You will need to use the control panel and follow the instructions for changing in the passwords on the Unity services.

Re: Password Change

Here's a couple of posts with some details on how to do what I think you're wanting to do:

If you want to change the account being used by Unity's services (i.e. all the AV* services), follow these steps:

If you just want to change the password password on the account you used to install Unity, follow these steps:

If that isn't what you wanted, let me know and we'll see what we can do.

Re: Password Change

Thanks for the info.
Under exchange admin, service password change is this changing the password for the service account that Unity uses for Exchange or is it something more global. I'm trying not to affect the the exchange passwords the exchange admin guys use. The changes I wish to make are for Unity only - please confirm.

thanks

Re: Password Change

If you're justing changing the password of the account that installed Unity, just follow the second link in my previous post... it's pretty straight forward. Changing the password for the Exchange service account is pretty hairy, you'd need to get hold of the white paper Microsoft has on that if you need to go there...
