Topic Last Modified: 2010-11-29

The FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint user is a domain user. When the user password is changed in Active Directory Domain Services, the password of the FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint user must be changed on all servers in the FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint farm.

All content input sources that modify the index should be paused before you change the password. This includes pausing crawls, link analysis and other connectors that feed content into the index.

To change the user password
  1. Pause (suspend) crawling.

  2. Pause the Web Analyzer components. These components analyze links between items and search click-through logs. The components must be stopped to avoid partial updates for indexed items during the procedure.

    1. On the administration server, open a FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint shell:

      1. Verify that you meet the following minimum requirements: You are a member of the FASTSearchAdministrators local group on the server where FAST Search Server 2010 for SharePoint is installed.

      In the Views section of the command output, for the default view, inspect the Schedule status.

      1. If the Schedule status is set to paused, type the following command:

        waadmin enqueueview
        
      2. Wait until the default Web Analyzer view is running. Type the command waadmin ShowStatus and inspect the Schedule status. The Schedule status should be set to running.

    3. Stop Web Analyzer processing:

      At the Windows PowerShell command prompt, type the following command(s):

      waadmin AbortProcessing
      spreladmin AbortProcessing
