I just joined a company where some individual has created a MOSS 2007 portal. He created a local administrator level account on domain. Somehow nobody remembers the password of that account. If I will reset the password from Windows 2003 server of moss.admin what consequences I can face? or how to tackle this situation. Please guide.
