Need to change password of an admistrative account

The network I just took over was established with one admin user that all major services use.  The network consists of 20 servers.  The account is a DOMAIN, SCHEMA ADMIN ACCOUNT....

Is there any way for me to see what services is used by this account?  I need to change this password because someone just left the company that knew this password.  I could just change it and see what services fail...  not the best approach...

just disable the account - any problems re-enable it
Hi chadd25,

On the server run this
wmic /output:c:\services.htm service list full / format:htable

this will create an HTML file called services in c:\ open that in Internet Explorer and you have the info you want.

Regards,

It is a 2000 domain.  WMIC only works on XP and 2003.
You can run wmic from an XP machine just set the node to the server.
