My sharepoint farm user password has been compromised and exposed. I need to change it! is there a simple way to do this?
I'm thinking in change the farm user password and then run after whatever problems appear but that is kinda dangerous and i wont be 100% sure that everything is working fine... I was hoping for a more secure (even if its more dificult to execute) way to do it!
Tks for the support.
because i did a "by the book" installation all i had to do was:
- Go to Central Admin
- Go to Secutrity
- Click Configure Managed Accounts
- Edit the user you want and edit it
- Check the box "Change Password Now"
- Insert new password and Save
You must be very carefull when changing the password of the farm account. Maybe this post will help.
