Changing the System Account passwords in MOSS 2007 (AP)

Last Modified: 2012-05-09
We are currently running MOSS 2007 in a Windows Server 2003 environment using two user accounts:

SharepointWeb
SharepointSQL

These accounts are used within the Central Admin console, and for the services, and possibly other places, as far as I know its a pretty standard MOSS 2007 setup.

Every 30 days we have a system account password change evening, and all the system account passwords get changed. Is there a way we can automate the password change? Maybe a script?

Any help?
