I would like to change the admins password, but unsure if this will have any adverse effects.

I know about services

but have used this account for joing to domains, trusts installing software etc etc

As long as no services are using this account and password to run or any other apps such as backup etc are using it you should be fine to reset the password and to be honest it should be done regularly as part of your security policy.

If you see any adverse effects you can always set the password back till you are able to resolve any issues.
Hi mhamer,

agreed, i do this regularly and all is well as long as you double check services
