Backup exec services not starting

To whom can help,
 
          I logged on symantec backup exec 11d for small business servers and it now prompts me for a username and password and the services are shown as stopped. the admin credentials was changed not long ago but i dont think that should affect backup exec.  i changed the logon password in the services for each backup exec service but no luck any help out there??

Ok, if you go to the Backup Exec service properties and then on to the Dependency tab, it will show you all the services it depends on. Visit the properties of each service list in the dependencies and check the LogOn tab. If the account is your admin account, you will need to update it with the new credentials.

Ho abpExpert,
This could be to do with changing your admin credentials recently. Go into Windows Services and find the Backup Exec service. Right click and select Properties and go to LogOn tab. If the service logs on as your admin account, you will need to update your credentials.
HTH,
