MS Office Communications Server 2007 R2 Password Changes

Last Modified: 2015-02-27

Due to a corporate directive, I have to change all the service account passwords that are running in our MS Office Communications 2007 R2 Server.

These are the accounts and services that we have identified:

RTCACPMCU      Office Communications Server Telephony Conferencing  - RTCService
RTCAPPSRV      Office Communications Server Application Host   -  RTCComponentService
RTCASMCU      Office Communications Server Application Sharing  -  RTCComponentService
RTCAVMCU      Office Communications Server Audio/Video Conferencing      - RTCComponentService
RTCDATAMCU      Office Communications Server Web Conferencing  -  RTCComponentService
RTCIMMCU      Office Communications Server IM Conferencing  -  RTCService
RtcQmsAgent      Office Communications Server Monitoring Agent  -  RTCService
RtcSrv      Office Communications Server Front-End   -  RTCService

Is it as easy as changing the SA passwords in AD and then change the services passwords?  Is there anything that I need to log into the OCS Console for (like when I changed the SA passwords in SCOM, for example)?  Any gotcha's?
