You need to just change the SPFARM account password in Active Directory.

You'll find the account in My Business > Users > SBSUSERS as Sharepoint Farm Account

Then, continue to follow the steps in the article you linked above:

Here’s is what you should do:

In SBS 2011, the problem stems from an expired password on the account named spfarm. You might have trouble finding this account in your active directory. It is located in Active Directory Users and Computers, under My Business OU – Users – SBSUsers and is called Sharepoint Farm Account. This password has expired and you need to reset it. Reset it to a complex password that you’ll remember.
Next open Services.msc and sort by the Logon As column. Change the password to the one you just set for each service that logs on with that account.image
Open the Sharepoint 2010 Management Shell. This is Sharepoint’s powershell console. Enter the the following: Set-SPManagedAccount -UseExistingPassword -Identity domain\spwebapp  Being sure to put in your domain name where the command string calls for domain. For good measure, I did ran this command for spfarm, spwebapp and spsearch.
Still in the shell, run this command: Repair-SPManagedAccountDeployment
Open an elevated command prompt and run IISreset /noforce
At this point you may want to see if everything is running, it may be and you might be done. Be sure to check your sharepoint website and the central admin site.

Open in new window

Hi Jeff,

Thanks for the response.
I think my problem is: there is already an attemp to change the password (a job running) that I  need to clear and start again. How can I clear that running job?
Restarting does not help? Is there a command to stop the existing: job_admin_apppool_change?
Thank you Sir,
Olaf
