RE: Service account and logon as service permission.

This is a domain account call it PPC\test. The ChangeServiceConfig seems to
work so the user name and password are correctly entered into the service
database. But I still get a logon failure. I have added PPC\test to the
"logon as service" for the domain policy. This is why when I run the Services
MMC and go to the Log on tab and change the user and password I get a message
box that says that PPC\test has been granted "logon as service" permission.
Is what I want to happen is for this to happen automatically without the need
to go to the MMC. Do I need to modify the domain policy, local policy (the
local machine where the service is running)? If so how? I have successfully
been able to get a policy handle for the local machine but the domain account
PPC\test can't be found when I try to enumerate the rights.(although I can
get a SID for this account)

Any insight?

Thank you.
