How to Change Service Accounts and Passwords

After you configure BizTalk Server, it is common for organizations to require changing service accounts or passwords by Account policies, such as Password Policy and Account Lockout Policy. For more information about Account policies, see the Microsoft TechNet Web site at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=62172.

When changing service accounts or passwords, you must do the following:

  1. Create a new service account or change the password of existing accounts.

  2. Ensure that the service account is a member of the necessary Windows groups. For information about the local or domain groups to which you must add the service account, see Windows Groups and User Accounts in BizTalk Server 2006.

    In a domain group environment, you use the Active Directory Users and Computers console. In a local group environment, you use the Computer Management console.
