Password Reset for windows IDs in ESP

We currently have a Windows domain ID that we use to run windows distributed jobs from ESP. This ID has a non-expiring password that has been defined to ESP using the ESP PASSWORD command.  Now I am being asked by the security team if that ID could be changed to have the password changed every 30 days. At first I said no, because we have to define that password to ESP and so windows jobs would fail after it changed.  So now they are asking me if we could have an automated process to pick up the new password somehow and redefine it in ESP every 30 days. 

 

So, my question is 2-fold.

 

Can this be done and if so, does anyone have an automated process they are using to do this?
