Affects of changing the Hybrid Exchange Online and ADConenct passwords

As above.
Assume if we change the PW of ADConnect, we just need to re-enter this on the setup wizard in order to replication to contiue?
Also what happens if we change the hybrid global admin account password?
Thanks

It is unsupported to change the password for the ad connect service account since it destroys the encryption keys.

For the global admin it doesn't matter unless you have scripts using it

The global admin account is used for my hybrid setup, so assume i would need to update it in EMC?

If you mean to reconnect to exchange online from emc m ecp then yes but it is not something to worry about.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

and if it doesn't just  right-click the top node and just re-add the O365 connection as a new forest. It will ask you for credentials to connect.

We have two accounts, one for adconenct and one for hybrid exchange.  I want to change PW for both.

Ok. Maybe I misunderstood your question, if you are talking about changing the account of the global admin account then what I said is correct

If you want to change the addconnect service password then you cannot it is  not supported
