Domain Administrator Password changed Problem

In our organization they decided to change the Windows Domain Administrator password. I went and changed the password in services for all the SIM related entries and for Microsoft SQL Server. Then I used mxpassword to set the password there but I am now still getting inside of HP SIM authentication error messages, all about and Administrator. I believe these come from the other modules we use, such as ISEE. Where can I find more information, the email notification nor the event information inside of SIM is very informative:

Event Name: Login Failed Authentication
URL: https://hpsim:2381/
Event originator: hpsim
Event Severity: Major
Event received: 17-Sep-2007, 12:21:49
Event description: Login Failed Authentication

Security Event Details
User Name: CORP\administrator
IP Address:
Device Name:

As it tries to go to 2381, it indeed seems ISEE related.

Re: Domain Administrator Password changed Problem

If I use mxpassword -g and then choose modify, I can see MxHPSIMServicePassword, MxSshKeyPassword and MxDBUserPassword. I had already changed MxDBUserPassword and also changed now MxHPSIMServicePassword but I am not sure that this will take care of when HP SIM tries to talk to ISEE related items via port 2381?

Looks like MxHPSIMServicePassword did actually the trick, haven't gotten any events yet.
