    The FM Global security team has advised that the UC4svc password needs to be changed to meet the corporate security standards and the possibility exist that that it may need to change every 90 days. The UC4svc account is the primary login for our job scheduling and I wanted to know if anyone has changed this password and if any issues were encountered as a result of the password change.

    Im just assuming you are referring to a system account that you run your system and agents with on OS level. If that is the case there should be no issues of changing that password. but if you are running jobs with it as well then you may expect failed jobs due to incorrect login details. Im yet to see environment where password sync instantly to all servers without issues.

    Other than the service interuption for stopping/starting the windows service we've not had any troubles.
