System Logon Account Password

I am running Backup Exec 2014 with all of the patches.

My "System Logon Account" is DOMAIN\sbe.  What is the proper way to change the password for this account?  

In AD first and then in Backup Exec via the Logon Account Managment tool?  Or do I just do it in the Logon Account Managment Tool and that passed it to AD in the background?

Thanks for any help with this process!

BE cannot interact with AD.

BE cannot interact with AD.  You got to change the password in AD and then change the password in BE.

If this account is also used for the BE services, then you would also need to change them.  I think BEUtility which is found in the BE installation directory can help.

It is used for the services,

It is used for the services, 4 on each BE server.  I can change them manually in the services app.

Thanks for your help!
