Does changing MSSQL's password affect my system?

Jump to solution

My ePO uses Windows user authentication to access MSSQL. Now I want to change the password of all my Windows users. I know I also need to change the password on ePO's https: // localhost: 8443 / core / config-auth at the same time. But I want to know, what happens to my system when I change my Windows user password but I haven't changed the password in ePO settings?

If you don't change the password in epo, epo won't be able to connect to the database, so it can't process events, agent props, send policies, etc.  They will just fail to connect to epo.

Additionally, that account will get locked out due to epo trying to connect repeatedly.  You will also need to change it on agent handlers, if you have any.  To do that, run the agent handler setup and choose modify to reset credentials there.

Thanks for your reply.

As long as I change the ePO password, it will automatically become normal together, right?
