Solved Changing administrator password on SBS 2003

Specs: Windows Small Business Server 2003, Dual Quad Core
Hello there. We have a Microsoft SBS 2003 server that has an old administrator password on it. I'd like to change the password as we've had a slight change in employees, and would hate for anyone to access the server via remote login. Is there an easy way to do this without causing mayhem? Currently the one password allows full administrative control over the server and workstations.

The new password is going to have the same permissions. Of course, I'm sure you are going to delete the accounts of the former employees & add or remove people from the administrator's group.

How do you know when a politician is lying? His mouth is moving.

ScoobyDoo, thanks for the reply. That seems easy enough, ctrl+alt+del to change administrator password, then open up services.msc, sort by "Log On As" and update the password for all services that depend on the administrator credentials. That sound like the bulk of it, or are there any snags I should prepare for?
