OES 11sp2 tree admin user password change

Looking for some help/suggestions/tidbits on what to expect regarding our OES 11sp2(linux) servers when the tree admin user password is changed. We currently have one tree with 5 oes servers and we need to change the admin user password but we don't want to do it until we know if this will or will not break anything. I'm assuming we will need to re-run through the OES configuration on each server? Anything else I might be missing that will be affected by the password change? We are using quite a few proxy users for access within the tree hoping this will minimize the damage once the admin password has changed. thanks for your help.

If you are using proxy users then that should definitely help. In the end
knowing which services are using the admin user for some reason will
probably just require trial/error, or at least watching logins on the
servers themselves for unexpected logins from admin using ndstrace:

set dstrace=nodebug
dstrace +time +tags +auth
set dstrace=*m9999999
dstrace file on
set dstrace=*r
#watch for a while
dstrace file off

Search the resulting ndstrace.log file for logins from 'admin' and see if
you can figure out what may have caused them.

Or just change things during a maintenance window and test to see which
services break. 🙂

Good luck.
