SQL account logon failure?

I have SQL 2008 sestup specifically for Operations Manager 2007 R2 (SCOM).

Every time I reboot the server, the service account doesn't start and errors out with a logon failure:  Windows Could not start the SQL Server Service on Local Computer Error: 1069 The service did not start due to a logon failure.

It's like it's not keeping the password hash on the local system. Putting in the same password again helps until next reboot or just given some time.

I have read articles and recreated the SQL account but happend again a few days later.

Any ideas?

Thanks guys/gals :) Happy Valentines day!

Interesting. I just found out that I can stop and start the service just fine after the temp fix. But after a gpupdate /force and a stop, restart, it gives me the logon failure again.

I do have logon as service right, but I'll have to look further into what policy may be causing this.

Hi,
Try logging onto the the server with the account used for the service and you may find the password is incorrect. Once on the server try starting the service and you may get better indication of what is wrong.  The account will also need to be in the administrators group on the server.

I added login as servicce and debug programs. The local administrators didn't cut it but the other two did.

All is well.

Login as service was probably it. Debug programs was required for something else part of the application I'm using SQL for, I think.

Thanks
