A common challenges for service accounts, after that 1st install, is these are "known" passwords to many team members or may become "stale" with regard to internal governance policies.
The deck (pdf) enclosed outlines the list of service accounts, the location of the password hash, the separation of duties (SOD) & functionality performed by each service account (this assume not one ID was used), and a primary method to update the password.
