my client wants to change passwords of all service accounts.

So is it possible/recommended to change the passwords of SF service accounts like 

NT SERVICE\CitrixClusterService

NT SERVICE\CitrixConfigurationReplication, etc

If possible, how can I achive this and what Storefront tasks need to be done afterwards, i.e change password in SF services etc


Thanks a lot

There are two concepts when process communicate with each other: what account the process is running as, and the security identifiers it presents when authenticating. The NT SERVICE\xxx described above are per service security identifiers that are used to control access to specific services running as NETWORK SERVICE. For more information, take a look at: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/relational-databases/security/using-service-sids-to-grant-permissions-to-services-in-sql-server?view=sql-server-ver15


In reality the process are running as NETWORK SERVICE which is a system account, so there is no need to manage the password.
