sharepoint says "no backup history was found. choose a different directory path"

Posted on 2011-10-11

I made some changes to the usernames that sharepoint uses, and now no one in the organization can log in.  It prompts for a username/password, but it doesn't accept it.

How do I fix that?

I even tried to restore from a backup from earlier yesterday, but sharepoint doesn't even recognize the backup???

    I set back all the accounts with the local service, which was the default before I made the change.
    I even restarted the server and restarted the services, and it's still not working.  
    How do I get sharepoint to run it's internal job for using the new accounts, as I can't wait until tonight..

    I used network service account, it's working now. It just gives me the error that i shouldn't use that accout.
