I could not setup the pwd1 for service svc1 under user adm1 sc config ..... However if I use the GUI, I was able to do it.
Does anyone know the reason?

Does the password contain any special characters like &!% ?

Thanks for info. The close real situation like this
sc config abcabcabcabcabcabc obj= aaa\abcabcabc password= xyzxyzxyz111
Only one special character / is in obj. I noticed that if the password was not set or not set right.
Any idea??

You do not change the obj, do you? If so, there is a bug - the account needs to get extended privileges to be able to serve as a service account. If you set account info with GUI, that privilege is given automatically, but not with sc.

Else I cannot see any potential problem in your command.

You can do this with Local Security Policy editor (and analogous for Domain and Domain Controller), or via commandline with ntrights (contained in W2003 Resouce Kit Tools, http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=9d467a69-57ff-4ae7-96ee-b18c4790cffd&DisplayLang=en).

ntrights +r SeServiceLogonRight -u aaa\abcabcabc
sc config abcabcabcabcabcabc obj= aaa\abcabcabc password= xyzxyzxyz111

For available privileges and rights, see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd277460.aspx, as the help of ntrights does only show privileges, and no rights.
