Admin password reset
Posted on 2011-09-29
Our contract with our outsourced IT support services has been terminated and we will managing things in house until we asses alternatives. So naturally to protect ourselves I and company asset's we will need to change the local servers admin password and domain admin password. However I dare say that there are services and applications running within our network that are connected to the Directory service using domain admin credentials and if the application is performing critical task of querying / writing data using the credentials , then I we will end up in a trouble.
My question is, does anyone have any advise and tips on how best to tackle both the ressetting of the admin passwords for our Exchange, File and Terminal server and domain controller admin password> and also does anyone know of any useful utilities that can assist in finding out which applications and services are running and connected using the admin credentials?
