Running 2012 Active Directory.
I have added an account purely to start a Windows servicve on a member server in a AD Domain.
As part of the Server Policy, this account is a member of a group that is set to "logon on as a batch job" and "log on as a service".
Yet when I use the account details in the service and attempt to start the service is returns "Error 1069: The service did not start due to a logon failure".
If i use my user account to start the service it is fine. I even gave the account membership of Domain Admins to whcih it still failed.
I have done a gpupdate /force on the server just to make sure, made no difference.

The service did not start due to a logon failure

pretty straight-forward error - the password specified is incorrect

Much appreciated ...
