    Hello,

    This points to fact that account that you are using is not a valid account .either its not valid windows account or valid SQL account .

    Make sure whatever account you use is added into SQL server logins.

    More details about when you got this error  would be helpful

  • Hello,

    Make sure the Windows account you are introducing as service account has a strong password. A strong password is a password like p@ssw0rd.

    Hope this helps.

  • Hi help933,

    According to your description, when you use the Server Configuration page of the SQL Server Installation Wizard to assign login accounts to SQL Server services, you can assign the same login account to all SQL Server services, or you can configure each service account individually. You can also specify whether services start automatically, are started manually, or are disabled. For example, on Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 ,most accounts are set to the default NETWORK SERVICE account.

    Also there is a similar issue about seivice account, you can review the following post.
