Need to change 2003 cluster svc acct - cause and effect
Posted on 2012-03-21
I have a 2003 Exchange cluster environment. I need to drop a node, fix it, and add it back to the cluster. However, we don't have any documentation for the cluster service account's password. I found how to change it without service interruption but that too, requires the old password. So now, I'm stuck at making the change in Active Directory. I need to know the best way to handle this situation given the above scenario. The goal is to minimize the downtime occurred by the password change.
