Changing Passwords for Office SharePoint Server Accounts with STSADM

Search Service Accounts
You can use the following stsadm command to update the password for the Office SharePoint Server Search service.
stsadm –o osearch –farmserviceaccount <domain/username> -farmservicepassword <password>

Alternatively, you can reconfigure these accounts by using the Shared Services Administration section of the Central Administration Web site.

Shared Services Provider Accounts

If you change the password for an SSP account, you must update the account details by using either the Central Administration Web site or the stsadm command-line tool. You can use the following stsadm command to update an SSP account.

stsadm –o editssp –title <SSP name> -ssplogin <domain/username> -ssppassword <password>
You must then run the iisreset /noforce command to restart the SSP service.

Other Application Pool Accounts

To update the application pool account, run the following stsadm command on the server that hosts the Central Administration Web site.

stsadm –o updateaccountpassword –userlogin <domain/username> -password <new password> -noadmin


Server Farm Account

To update the server farm account, run the following stsadm command on the server that hosts the Central Administration Web site. stsadm –o updatefarmcredentials –userlogin <domain/username> -password <new password>

You must then run the iisreset /noforce command to restart the application pool.
If you encounter a Service Unavailable error when you try to access the Central Administration Web site, you must also run the following stsadm command on every other server in your server farm.
stsadm –o updatefarmcredentials –userlogin <domain/username> -password <new password> -local
You must then run the iisreset /noforce command to restart the application pool.

  8. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm planning to
    start my own blog soon but I'm having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking
    for something unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  10. Hi there, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i
    was just curious if you get a lot of spam feedback?

    If so how do you reduce it, any plugin or anything you can recommend?
    I get so much lately it's driving me insane so any support is very much appreciated.
