Renaming the BESAdmin Account

Hi people,


is it a problem if we rename the BESAdmin account? Does anything need to be reconfigured or should the changes be propegated throughout.

You will have to make a few changes


all BES services will have to have passwords reentered

Database SA password will need to change

Mapit profile might have to be recreated on BES too.
