Change SBS 2008 Admin Password
Posted on 2012-09-13
- I have SBS 2008 (NOT R2).
- The Administrator (xxxadmin) password got around and I need to change it.
- With SBS I understand it is best to use the 'wizards" to make changes when possible.
Where would I change the xxxadmin password, "Windows SBS Console", Users/Groups Tab, right click xxxadmin and change password? Or Start Control Panel, User Accounts (domain\xxadmin)...Manage User Accounts and click Alt, Control, Delete.
Under Services, Logon I see Services Logon as either = Local Service, Local System Account and Network Service (and not the Administrator account by name (xxxadmin)). Do I need to change anything here?
Under Task Scheduler Library I see>>>
EngagementSqlBackup - logon = domain\xxxadmin
ShadowCopyVolume - logon = xxxadmin
ShadowCopyScheduleForDiskDriveC - logon= administrator (strangely not xxxadmin)
CentralBinMaintenance - logon = System
FSRM_REPORT_TASK - logon = System
Do I need to change anything here?
We are also using SBS Backup
and the Exchange part of SBS is used
Thank You in Advance....
