In our company ArcGIS Desktop Users have tens of mxd's with saved user credentials. To follow our company standards, users need to change their passwords once in 3 months. For large number of ArcGIS Desktop users it is very difficult to open all MXD's(containing SDE and/or ArcGIS Server connections) and update the passwords. Due to this users end up with locked database account except those who dont save their credentials in document.

Please share the best practices for this scenario.


Our Environment: ArcSDE 10.1, RHEL 6, ArcGIS Desktop 10.1 & 10.3, Oracle 11g2
