3.3. You changed the Administrator account and now a service fails to start

As a security measure, each service in Windows 2000 must log on with a valid account. Many services use a special System account built in to Windows 2000 for logon. In some cases, however, services (particularly those you install through an application) use a different account. Typically these applications prompt you to specify the service account when you install the application.

For example, assume you're installing a backup application that provides email notification of job status, and you'd like to use the same account for running the service as you use to generate the messages. You might create an account called BackupApp, give it the necessary rights required by the application and then use that account as the service account.
