Any reason why I can't add a domain user as the logged on role for a Windows service? The syntax of the domain name and user is correct and the password is definitely correct, but whenever I try to set the logged on user as a domain user, I get an error saying the user name or password is incorrect. Any ideas? I'm trying to run the cruise service as a domain user. Also, the cruise service is running on a machine that is on the same domain.

Thanks for any help.

You may need to grant the user account the right to log on as a service
