SBS 2008 how to change password

What is the best way to change the password on my SBS 2008?  Do I need to consider anything before changing the password? I usually let the system prompt me for a new password and doing it that way hasn't been a problem as far as anything not working or not connecting once I have changed the password that way. The reason I am doing it now is I had to share the password with someone and now want to change it and I am concerned about what will or won't work properly if I change it now, in middle of the afternoon, while everyone is on the LAN.

By default, you can change your password (or any administrator account password) without impacting any other users other than a user that may be logged in under that account.

....with that said, that is "default."  If you have installed a 3rd-party app that requires admin access, and you didn't create an admin account, or even better, a service account, just for that app (the recommended process) and you provided your account username and password instead then that service/app will likely stall with the password change. But that is also 3rd-party dependent and whether that will happen to you or not, only you know what you've installed and where you've provided credentials.
