We are running Sharepoint 3.0 on a windows 2008 r2 server with SQL 2005. We recently had to change a service account password and now sharepoint displays "Service Unavailable". I found two services on the server (windows sharepoint services search and windows sharepoint services timer) had stopped due to the change but I put the new password in the server services and they are running again. I have tried rebooting the server with no success. I see several Event IDs 6641 in the application Event Viewer;

The SSP Timer Job Distribution List Import Job was not run.

Reason: Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password

Technical Support Details:
System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception: Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password
   at Microsoft.Office.Server.Utilities.WindowsSecurity.GetUserTokenFromCredentials(String userDomainName, String password, LogonType logonType)
   at Microsoft.Office.Server.Utilities.WindowsSecurity.GetUserTokenFromCredentials(String userDomainName, String password)
   at Microsoft.Office.Server.Administration.JobHandler.Execute(Object state)

I verified that the account was not disabled but I did need to reenable it a couple times since this started. I am suspecting there is some other place I need to reset this service accounts password, but not sure where to go from here. All advice welcome

Check in IIS. Each app pool has credentials that can be set under advanced settings. Check in there and make modifications as necessary.

Hope that helps
