Password Change + Site Reset

    Question

  • Hi,

     

     a silly question.

     

    I have deployed SCCM 2007 in Mixed mode in our org. XXX was the account logged in that server while installing the same. I have a small doubt. I am planning to reset the password of this XXX account. Eventhough in Mixed mode all services run under Local system Account, will it have any effect in SCCM finctionality???

     

    After password change will i have to RESET SITE?

  • Proper procedure (in this specific case)

     

    Change password.

    Open configmgr admin console

    Go to client installation methods\client push installation

    Clear the push installation account.

    Re-Enter the account

     

    Go to client agents\computer client agent

    Click the Clear button for the network access account!

    Click the set button to re-enter the network access account.

  • If the account was only used for installing the site and is not defined as an account in SCCM (client push installation account etc.) then you don't have to care about SCCM. Just change the password.

  • Hi,

     

    Yes, the account is used for client push and is also the Network access account.

    It would be nice if somone could let me know the actual procedure to change the password in such case. Or is there any SCCM link for the same?

  • What's wrong with Kim's explanation? That's the way to do with. What is still unclear?

  • Kim thanks a million for the steps. One last questions: Do you need to push all of the SCCM clients agents to reset all of the site clients?
