I need to change the password for the AD account used when the Citrix farm was installed.  If I change this, do I need to do any other configuration in Citrix so things don't break.  Thank you.

Yes; you will need to reflect this password change by using the following syntax in a command prompt on the famr servers:

dsmaint config /user:<Domain Name>\<AD account name> /pwd:<new password>

Example: If my domain is xyz.com, AD account used to install Citrix is XyzAdmin and the new password is xYz1!23, then the command should be:

dsmaint config /user:xyz.com\XyzAdmin /pwd:xYz1!23
