Service account used by web application

  Asked By: Ravi    Date: Nov 19    Category: MOSS    Views: 5612

I have to update the passwords on our development MOSS 2007 server. I am
going over the KB article and I am stuck on something.
I want to make sure that I am doing this right. There is a section where
you have to determine the application pool account that is used by the
web applications on your server farm. I looked in IIS to verify the
service accounts that are controlling my four web applications. Three
of them are using the same service accounts, but the Records Center is
using a separate web application.

The script that is provided is stsadm -o updateaccountpassword
-userlogin DomainName\Username -password NewPassword -noadmin. I didn't
notice where you tell it which web application you are updating or is it
going to update the web application based on the username that I am

I hope this make sense.

This is very different from SP 2003!!!

It updates the settings for that username in the SharePoint config
database and other required places. Since a specific username is used
as a service  account for multiple web  apps you don't need to specify the
web app.
