Sql Server 2008R2 with windows authentication

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!!!

You need to make sure that the SQL service account is not the Domain Admin account, also any services related to SQL Server (Ager, VSS, etc ) ..

If you can the password, other application using the relevant accounts, should be adjusted as well.

If you're changing machine password you will have to refresh all the opened connection. So in other words Client Application restart is also needed.

Yes. The jobs by default runs with the SQL Server Agent account unless you provide another user credential.
