We have a Windows 2003 Domain. The DC is Small Business Server with IIS, ISA,Exchange. We run Share Point on a 2003 box with MSSQL on another 2003 box. We have a total of 9 Servers (2 are VM) I took over this in OCT. 2004 The set up was not done correctlly so SQL is set to log in on the admin. account. I need to reset the admin password for the network but when it is done I lose SQL and portal. If I create a new account for SQL and get it off of the admin. account will this cause any problems? If it does what soloution should I use??
