    Is there a way to find a domain service account, reset the password and then have the service restarted automatically?

    I'm not quite sure I understand your question. If you need to reset the password for a service account, you can select the computers in Hyena's right window, right-click and choose More Functions->Service Startup. To the restart the service you will choose the Service Control option.

      Let me elaborate. I need to find certain domain service accounts, reset the password and restart the service. The problem is that I do not know all of the server's that the individual service account resides on. Does that make sense?

        You can use the Export functions in Hyena, either the Exporter Pro or the Run Export option and export services. This will create a delimited text file that will have all the services and information for the chosen computers.

        You can then open this file with Excel and sort it to see which computers/services use each particular account. From there you can take that and use the procedure I outlined above to actually change and restart them.
