hi experts

i have a windows 2003 server that i cannot start the dns client service. i get the error 1079 the account specified for this service is different from the account specified for other services running in the same process.

it was running as local system. i have since changed it to nt authority\local service but am still getting the same error message. do i need to reboot for this change to take effect?

this server is primary dns server and secondary domain controller

if you need any further info let me know

cheers
