sde:sqlserver database connections and maps

We have an SDE database and we're using spatial database connections from within ArcCatalog for the connections; GISViewer, GISEditor, GISOwner.


When we created our MXD maps, we used the GISViewer connection within ArcMap to add the different items to the map.


Here is our problem, we've forgotten the password for our GISViewer account.  The existing connections work, because they're configured for the forgotten password.  But we need to document the passwords for auditing purposes.


If I change the GISViewer password then re-created a database connection with the new password, would a simple replace of the datasource on the map file work properly?


Or is there another step we'll be missing?
