Want to reset a password in ePolicy Orchestrator 5.x using ePIP.exe

Hello,

I want to reset a password in ePolicy Orchestrator 5.x using ePIP.exe.

Before running this ePIP.exe i want to clear some point.

1: Any risks and impacts of admin password change?

2:Roll back plan in case something goes wrong with ePO while changing password?

3:Any pre-requisites to be done, like server backup, server tasks backup, DB and ePO application backup?

4:Will it impact the server tasks running with admin privileges?

5: Any other points before changing password?
