  • You can simply change the password by doing the following steps:

    1. Go to Start and search for "Services" and then hit Enter to open it.

    2. Find the services that are being used by the account you want to change the password for.

    3. Double-click the services and then go to the Log-On tab, change the password to the new password.

  • Hello,

    DPM doesn't have any administrators assigned, the users who are members of the local administrator's group on the DPM server(s) are automatically administrators in DPM, you change the passwords of these accounts normally in the Active Directory (AD).

    Or do you want to change the password of the account that is running the DPM services?

    Best regards,
    Leon

  • The last one - change the password of the account that is running the services locally.

  • Yes, this is fine. The question is if it's necessary to change the password for the services because it's running with "local system account". Or is my understanding not correct?

  • No need to change for the local system account.
