Citrix 6.5 - Change Service Account Password Used to Connect to Database


Due to a corporate initiative I have to change the password on the Service Account that I use for connecting my 6.5 farm to the database.  I put this system in a year ago and haven't touched it since, so I need a little help.

The database server is running 2008 R2 and is a 2008 SQL database.  It is a very small environment with only one web server, 2 app servers, and the DB server.  It is also rarely used so I can do this anytime.

I'm thinking this is going to be fairly simple, just out of time to research what needs to be done.  Any help would be appreciated.

You can use dsmaint to change the username and/or password.
