Greetings,

I have a question in regards to changing the SQL Server services account and SQL Server Agent service account. I have a change request that involves changing the SQL Server Service account and SQL Server Agent Service accounts to a new created domain account to replace the existing domain account. We have a very active environment which involves jobs that use SQL Server Agent service so my question is if I change the SQL Server Services account and SQL Server Agent Service account without restarting and wait until after  business hours to restart the services will that cause an issue with any jobs until I restart the services?

If the services keep running, you will not get any issue. Pay attention that the Agent will not being restarted by some application
