Business Objects XI: Incorrect log on parameters

I have many reports currently published to the Business Objects site that access a SQL Server database using an ODBC connection using SQL authentication.  This ticket database is now being replicated to another server and I am trying to publish reports that access the replicated database using a ODBC connection using windows authentication.  Using Crystal Reports, I can utilize the ODBC connection with windows authentication without any problem.  After publishing the report to Business Objects and utilizing the same windows credentials, I receive the following error: Error in File d:\temp\procSched\servernamehere.report\~tmp1efc572dc97c20a5.rpt: Unable to connect: incorrect log on parameters.  The Job Server is set up to use local system account.

Set the job server to use your windows account if you have the access to the server box.. Once I had an issue with the LOVs and it worked after I changed the LOV job server to use a different login as per the BO support. There was no explanaition given for why it had to be changed when it worked before!

The solution was modifying each of the BO services to logon with a domain user account instead of the localsystem account.
