I’m running a Windows Service Bus 1.1 farm on my local machine for testing, and recently the services stopped working after I updated my system password. The services were configured to run under my user account so needed to be updated after I changed my password.

To do so, we’ll need to use Service Bus Powershell.

First, stop any services that by be running.


Once everything is stopped, we can update the runas password by using a SecureString.

$pw=ConvertTo-SecureString -AsPlainText -Force -String 'yourpassword'
Update-SBHost -RunAsPassword $pw

And last, we just need to restart the farm.
