SP Account is not valid

Aug 13, 2012 at 6:26 PM

I am getting the error MyDomain/SP_Service is not valid. Check username and password in each place this account is used.

This deployment is in my personal lab so I have alot of flexibility here but not matter what I do I cannot get the script to get past the validating user accounts and passwords. I have removed the user from my AD and re added them in with appropriate permissions. I have double checked that the password is good and the account is not locked. I keep hitting the same wall and was hoping someone can provide me with some input

<ManagedAccount CommonName="spservice">
                <username>MyDomain\sp_service</username>
                <Password>mypassword</Password>
            </ManagedAccount>
            <ManagedAccount CommonName="portapppool">
                <username><MyDomain\SP_App</username>
                <Password>mypassword</Password>
            </ManagedAccount>
            <ManagedAccount CommonName="Mysiteapppool">
                <username>MyDomain\SP_MysiteAppPool</username>
                <Password>mypassword</Password>
            </ManagedAccount>
            <ManagedAccount CommonName="SearchService">
                <username>MyDomain\SP_Search</username>
                <Password>mypassword</Password>
            </ManagedAccount>

 

Thanks

Ok found my problem. The problem was the in the <Password>mypassword</password> there was a space before my password so it read

<password> mypassword</password>

 

lesson learned and on to the next
