If Universal Forwarder has changed default admin password, can Deployment Server still push configurations to it?

I'm about to deploy several Universal Forwarders and in the installation procedure I'm planning to include one step to change the default admin password.

Afterwards, can a Deployment Server still push configurations(Apps) to Forwarders as usual? No other process or configurations are required?

Thanks in advance.

Yes, deployment will work just fine. The deployment server isn't actually pushing apps to its clients, rather they're checking in regularly and will pull information from the server if the server instructs them to. Changing passwords on the deployment clients will not affect this functionality.

Thank you for your answer. Nevertheless, have you actually tested it?

And yes you are true, the DS doesn't push apps, just waits for queries from UFs. I wasn't very successful keeping the question simple!
