  • How to change the admin's password without problems ?

    Hi all

    We need to change the administrator's password .
    we're using active directory on two servers , checkpoint's firewall, norton's antivirus, exchange, backupexec and some other servers.
    All the servers are windows 2000.
    The backup is not using the admin's password.
    We were told to look for any services that "logon as" the administrator.

    Any more suggestions how to avoid any pitfalls ?

    Thanks

    Good one. If you find any, fix that immediately. Always use a dedicated account for services.

    Services are the most likely problem. If you are unlucky, someone will have the password built into scripts. Think about workstation imaging, etc.
