BPC; MS; 70;75;7.0;7.5; recover; sysadmin; service; account; pwd; install; AD; Active Directory; Domain; Server Manager; reset; credentials; encrypted; security; It is not possible with BPC to recover the password of BPC-install user. Actually the password was set into active directory if we are speaking about domain user or locally into server if we are speaking about installation with local user. You just have to set another password into Active Directory for that user or into server if we are speaking about local user and to use server manager to reset the credentials. In this way you don't need to recover the password. It is true that you can find a place where the actual PWD is stored but it is encrypted and it will be very difficult to recover from there. , KBA , EPM-BPC-MS , Microsoft Version , Problem
