Sql Server 2008R2 with windows authentication

IKtech asked
Last Modified: 2015-05-14
I have sql server 2008r2 running with windows authentication.  The domain admin password needs changed and I am wondering if there is any additional steps to ensure jobs, maintenance plans , etc will still work correctly after changing the domain admin password in active directory...

I am thinking that once I change the password there should be no additional setup on the server but perhaps any other apps or pc\servers connected may need a password updated.

Any thoughts?  Thanks experts!!!
