Dear Sonicwall Expert,

Our company is using Sonicwall NSA3500 UTM. more services are running on it. VPN, Global VPN, Intrusion prevention, App Control, CFS and so on. There are few VPN connection are configured and running well. There are few customised CFS configured and user group configured imported from LDAP server. DMZ is configured also for Spam filter for exchange 2010.

Now, our new System Administrator wants to change the administrator password of our Domain. I know that there are things to be consider before changing the Domain password. Specially we have several servers running in our environment. And frankly, I am new to sonicwall firewalls. I didn't touch much of the settings since it was configured fine by ex IT Admin.

My concern is, when domain administrator password is change, does it affect the firewall services? What services will be affected? And which part from the sonicwall UI should I go and make a changes?
