New agent jobs fails with : Could not obtain information about Windows NT group/user 'DOM\USER', error code 0x6e. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 15404)

Our windows engineer installed SQL Server 2012 and created an instance of SQL Server. I'm trying to get things set up for backups, etc. The creations of the maintenance plans and agent jobs are successful. However, when I try to execute them, they fail with the following errors:
Log Job History (LOCUS System Database FULL Backups.Subplan_1)
Job Name LOCUS System Database FULL Backups.Subplan_1
Sql Severity 0
Sql Message ID 0
Operator Net sent
Retries Attempted 0
The job failed. Unable to determine if the owner (LOCUS\locusadmin) of job LOCUS System Database FULL Backups.Subplan_1 has server access (reason: Could not obtain information about Windows NT group/user 'LOCUS\locusadmin', error code 0x6e. [SQLSTATE 42000] (Error 15404)).
I found mention of this kind of error when there has been service packs and hot fixes applied without reboot. That is not the case here.
