Windows services account log on as

i have win2003sp2 wiht sql 2005 enter wiht database on it. We have an application server on this from Microsoft "NAV". the problem is that every time we reboot server or restart services , the application server won't start until we type in the domain administator password on this ser vice. Weird! what can we do for this not to happend if we do not want to type again this password when reboot server or restart services.  (see below screen shot- i omit domain password, and server name). Any answer will be appreciate.

Best practices state that you should not be using the domain admin account for the service.  Create a new user account for the service and leave it with the default permissions.  then assign that account to the service in question.  The system should grant the user account the required permissions to run the service.

if we stop that service, you cannot restart it without manually entering login and password.
if i changed it to a different account, i do no want this happend again "putting password manually for whatever account"

I have my sql server running under its own account e.g.  sqlservice - i never have to enter the password for this service to start when i restart the server.

You should not have to enter the password for a service to start.  Check the Dynamics NAV setup documentation for installing the server and check that the service is configured correctly.

With Veeam Explorer for Microsoft Exchange you can choose the Exchange Servers and restore points you’re interested in, and Veeam Explorer will present the contents of those mailbox stores for browsing, searching and exporting.

yes, it is.
Since NAS installs as a Microsoft Windows Service, the NAS application will run using the credentials of the service. It is important to note that NAS cannot utilise NAV Database authentication, instead, it must log in using Windows Authentication. Therefore, the NAV database must be set up with a windows login in order to allow NAS entry. In addition, the NAS service must be set up to run using a windows login that exists in the NAV database. If NAS is required to interact with external services, it will do so as the service user, and will be limited to the permissions granted to that user

yes. i create a new account. give it all admin rights on local server. add it on windows services, and add it on NAV (Application) as super. then restart services, and it never asks for psw ever again. The problem was using the domain admin. All looks good now.
