  • Yasir,

    You have to reenter the new password in FCS.

    On the FCS server, open the console and at the top you have a menu. click on Action -> configure.
    a config wizard starts click on next and enter the account and password when you are prompted.

    Good luck!

  • Yasir,

    To make your life more easier, don't change the password for your service accounts. make it difficult to guess & share to few if you must. But if you have already, re-change it back and log in again. Good luck
