E9 Progress Database password reset

I do not have a lot experience with old V8 progress systems, however, nobody here knows the progress database password. I have figured out a way to reset that DB password so I can do backups and maintenance, but can you tell me what the risk of doing that is?
Will epicor have a problem communicating with the database if I change the password?
Anything I might be missing?

Many Thanks
