Hello all,

We are working on updating our passwords within Active Directory, and we have come across the SPReader account.  I know it is tied to SharePoint; However, I cannot find the user account within the SharePoint Central Management site.  Does anyone know where this user is configured in SharePoint?  I need to know prior to updating the user account's password within Acitve Directory.  (So we can immediately update it in SharePoint to limit down time)  

Your help is greatly apprectiated.
