problem when creating shared services in sharepoint 2007

Hi Folks,

I was trying to create a SSP in one of the web servers,and i got this error:

"Failure! Shared Services Provider creation failedReason: Timed out waiting for Shared Services Provider 'SharedServices1' provisioning timer job to startCheck the event log for details. "

I have checked the event log,and i found that the problem was from service account failure.

i found that the account which is running the sharepoint services is a user domain account and the user has changed the password of the service user account.

to change the service accounts of MOSS 2007,read below KB :

Hi MOSStafa
I have one question, what is the recommend user account to be used for the sharepoint service?
