Can't start any services, on any system in the domain, with a domain account.

Okay, I'm really stumped here.  

Only one domain controller, I didn't build the network...  We ran updates on many of the member servers and noticed that many had service failures upon reboot.  When we checked errors they were logon failures.  We checked the accounts and passwords and everything was as it should be.  We reset passwords and even created new accounts and received the same results.  I was able to logon to any server with new and existing accounts, so this doesn't make any sense.  

The event logs on the domain controller are squeaky clean.  Dcdiag and netdiag all pass with no errors.  DNS looks good...  Anybody have any suggestions?

All of the accounts used to start the services were domain admins.

Yeah, that's how they are running at the moment.  I need to start one of the SQL servers with a domain account soon to allow the developers to do a bulk insert from a network form.

I was able to start the sqlagent with a domain account yesterday but I wasn't able to restart the sql service due to active processing.  I tried to restart it tonight and it and neither service would start.  I don't mind the backup agents running from the local system but there are 4 sql servers that really need domain access.

Do you know of any good third party AD checking tools?  

Is it time to get Microsoft on the phone? :)

fair call i see what you mean

there is an expensive yet highly regarded product called ADJANITOR from quest (i think) although, usually the DIAGS would come back if there was anything wrong with AD....... i just cant think of why suddenly your security has spacked out........Trying to think of what it could be.......... and there is no errors at all in the logs?

Everything in the event logs in the past month has been informational.  Recent errors before that were licensing for Exchange and an active unothorized DHCP server.

I tried to promote another server to ferret out some of the issues and possibly correct them, but it failed due to a login failure.

Thanks for the input.

Oddly enough, file permissions, Exchange, and trusts with two other domains are still completely intact.  Last user leaves in 1/2 hour and I'll be talking to Microsoft about this one...  I'll let you know what is wrong if we actually figure it out.

Still no solution.  Microsoft techs have been in and out of the network via terminal services since last week.

And the solution is...  Create another domain in the forest and use an account from that domain to start services.  Ah well, at least they came up with that for free.
