Sysman user account on SIMS/Sqlserver
i've just been given a reindex patch to run by Capita which needs to be run under the Sysman user account (not SA).
It looks like when the DB software was installed no one kept a note of this password ( cant find anyone who know it) however looking at the ESSupgrade software there's a utility to rest the sysman password using the SA account - so I think I'm OK there.
My question is ...
a) is there anything SIMs uses in the background which would be affected by a password change on the Sysman account?
b) can I run the reindex patch at a quiet time but in working hours i.e. not having to get everyone off the system?
any guidance gratefully received.
