How/where on earth??


I just had trouble with the sc command on W2K server. Tried to change the logon account of a service from a domain account to local system.


C:\txt>sc \\server config BackupExecJobEngine obj= LocalSystem
[SC] ChangeServiceConfig FAILED 1057:

The account name is invalid or does not exist, or the password is invalid for th
e account name specified.

Then on your site I found it mentioned the password to use is : mypassword. I did that and it worked. Thanks! But where did you get that password from? it is not in the help files.

Anyway thanks again and definitely bookmarking your page

No password is associated with the LocalSystem account, you cannot interactively log on as LocalSystem. (it has no domain credentials) So I expect you will see the same thing with any old password chosen at random!
