I have set up a new user called MY_SERVUSER on a Windows 7 via computer management on a computer that is not on a domain. I have a script that sets up our service to start as that user that used to work under previous windows but now doesn't.
The script calls something like:
sc config ConverterService start= auto obj= localhost\MY_SERVUSER password= password
Which gets this error:
The account name is invalid or does not exist, or the password is invalid for the account name specified.
But if I run it like this it works:
sc config ConverterService start= auto obj= computername\MY_SERVUSER password= password
The computer is not on a domain. My guess is that in Windows 7 there is some sort of domain even if we are not on a domain. Is this correct? Is there anything that can be done to allow my scripts to continue using localhost\username instead of computername\username?
If I need some other way to create the user that is fine but the same sc command must be able to run on multiple computers.
