The corporate auditing requires that all accounts' passwords expire,
including service accounts. Questions:

1. Is it really a security recommendation?
2. Is there an easy way to automate this process (as a scheduled task, for
example)?
2. If a modify the password in the service settings, will this one keep
running with no disruption?
3. If I modify passwords for clustering service accounts, will those ones
keep running with no disruption?

Thanks,

Felipe
