Re: Changing mysql.sys User Password

This password is not used at all since the account is disabled for login.
Note also that even if it's enabled *THISISNOTAVALIDPASSWORDTHATCANBEUSEDHERE is not a valid password hash (that it needs to be in order to accept logins).

So, in a nutshell: leave it as it is. And make sure the account stays disabled. That is IMHO safest.
But if you need to change it it can be done and nothing will break since this account is not expected to log in at all. But then you'll be doing this at your own risk.
