Hey all,

We need to change an administrator account password.. problem is, it's running a lot of services on different servers in the company. Is there a tool out there that can help determine what services the account is running, and, to automatically change the password?

No easy method - now you know why its recommended that you DO NOT use the administrator (or any other such) account to run services and tasks. You should always create an account specifically for this purpose, set a strong password and set it never to expire.

I think this is not possible, maybe with some 3th party tool. But you can add your servers into Services Console and check in Log On As collum what service use service account for what you want change password.
