Change Password for Administrator Account on DC

I'm looking for a guide (or Tool, or Script) to change the password for the Administrator Account on a DC (Domain Controller).
I am afraid, that after the change, i have to edit all services on all servers with this account!
the DCs are Win2012, some of the Member Server 2k8.

Ideally you should not be using administrator account for services - separate account should be used based on services/applications/ servers

you can also think of managed service accounts - http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff641729(v=ws.10).aspx


Here, if you know the services names you can use following script for changing the password
