What if BI Service account password change is required?

Hello All,

My PROD BO environment is working absolutely fine since last 1 year. It's a cluster environment, Windows AD SSO enabled and now almost 700 reports are already scheduled on same.

Now, Client requires password change for BO service account which is BOAdmin user in my case.

Please let me know what all things I should be taking care of or should be aware of while doing this, before doing this and after this?

Like, I need to shut down SIA first and then need to change password given for SIA and tomcat manually. No scheduled reports will run while performing all this activity.

Do I need to recreate SPN's?

Please provide proper sequencing of operations to be done while changing password activity.

    You need to stop the SIA and need to update the new password in the SIA->Properties->Password.

    Apart form that if same username is used in the WinAD authentication setup then need to update the password in CMC->Authentication->windows authentication.

    If you have not generated KEYTAB then In Tomcat properties->Java tab need to update the password if you have used static password.if KEYTAB is generated then need to generate again for new password.
