Same goes for any RAS accounts.
    When I left a position where I had that sort of control, I sat with my replacement and watched him through the process of setting up his own passwords (which I didn't see) before I left. (Obviously it helped that I wanted to make sure they wouldn't be getting in touch for anything ever again... )

    In the end he let the password lapse instead of coming up with a new one when the requisite password refresh came along. At which point their IT shat itself and suddenly they were all ears to him
    Sounds about right.

    We are quite amicable at handover as we don't like to leave on a bad note or show any signs of bitterness to the schools so everything normally goes quite well.
