It turns out that despite this user only being used by the eConnect service, some client’s still prefer to change the password occasionally. Changing the password is a relatively simple thing to do, so long as you’re aware that the password is stored in two places.
The first one is the obvious one; it is stored in the eConnect Service. To change this password open Services ();
Find the entry for Microsoft Dynamics – eConnect Incoming Service 10, right click and then click properties and select the Log On tab;
Enter the new password and click OK.
The second password is located in Component Services ();
eConnect 10 is a COM+ application so expand outand locate the eConnect 10 for Microsoft Dynamics GP;
Click the Identity tab and set the password to the same as entered in Microsoft Dynamics – eConnect Incoming Service 10 Properties in Services.
Once both the Service and the COM+ Application have had their passwords changed the eConnect service will function correctly.
