I have installed Cognos 10 32bit, on window server 2008 r2 that is joined to a domain. I am unable to start or login with the domain service svc-cognos8. I have gone through a wide range of security settings with not luck. I have alwo tried the following with no luck.
>ensure that 'svc-cognos8' is part of the Cognos server's local Administrators group
>ensure that 'svc-cognos8' has the local policy: 'act as part of the operating system
>ensure that 'svc-cognos8' has the local policy: 'log on as service'
>logon to the Cognos server (remote desktop) with the 'svc-cognos8' user to verify that you know the current password
>on the Cognos server: click START>RUN>Services.msc to open the services snapin. Click the properties of the 'IBM Cognos' service and re-enter the password for the user.
I feel as though there is a seciruty setting prventing me from logging in with this service account. Please help.
