How could I recover MIIS service account password ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We lost MIIS service account password .

    If I reset MIIS service account password by ADUC password reset and set new password to MIIS service of MIIS server , will it work fine ?

    I found the key file of MIIS but I am not 100% sure it is the current key file of MIIS.

  • Yes, that will work. Change the password using ADUC and then change the password on the service. Start the service. If any other services anywhere on your network use the same account (they shouldn't as a best practice), you will need to also update the password on those service accounts and restart the service respectively.
