How to change the password of SharePoint service accounts

  • Change the password in AD Users and Computers as you would normally.
  • Log in to the SharePoint Server
  • Launch SharePoint Management Shell as an administrator.
  • Execute the following:
$username=”DOMAIN\spFarm”
$newpassword=ConvertTo-SecureString -String “password” -AsPlainText -Force
Set-SPManagedAccount -Identity $username -ExistingPassword $newpassword -UseExistingPassword:$true
  • This can take a minute or two to complete. There’s a lot to update here and these changes are intricate.
  • Now, open the Windows Server Services control panel on the SharePoint Server machine you are currently logged into, and then sort by the Log On As
  • Scroll down until you see the services having the server farm account (eg, spFarm).
  • For each of these services:
  • 1) verify that it is running;
  • 2) if its Startup Type has been changed to Disabled, change it back to Auto;
  • 3) if it is not running then start it;
  • 4) if on trying to start it, it prompts you for logon information, enter the appropriate logon info, including the new password, and then start it.
  • Go back to Central Administration and System Settings > Services on Server.
  • Start any service here that should be started but that stopped after you changed the password.
