When installing SQL server 2005, i provisioned a domain account to have the logon rights to SQL during the configuration wizard. however when i log into the machine as the domain account (admin) I cannot start any services related to sql server
I get Error1069 the service did not start due to a logon error.
I added the local administrator to the local groups that relate to sql that also included the domain account.
the domain account also has administrator privileges on this machine.
