Impact of changing password for Admin account used to install Uniprint

When doing the initial install of Uniprint, one of the first things you do is create a user account in Uniprint that has Administrator rights, after that you use either that account (or another account that has Administrator rights) to perform Administrator level activities.

 

Question:  If I later change the password for that Administrator level account, what impact might I expect to see?  Or, what issues might I encounter that would need resolved?  What services (MobilePrint, Print Center, whatever) might this break?  Any way I can check to see what might break?

 

Reason I'm asking:  I'm preparing a new build of the 'primary' Uniprint server on my system (moving from Windows Server 2008 to Windows Server 2016) and the new build has a different (much better) password for that same user account with Administrator rights.  Before I place the new build in place of the older system, I need to change/upgrade the password for that Administrator user account on the older system.  I want to make sure I minimize any issues I might encounter.

 

Thanks,
