    Change it back in AD and then execute this command stsadm -o updatefarmcredentials -userlogin DomainName\UserName -password NewPassword http://support.microsoft.com/kb/934838

    This SPSetup account is the same account with your farm account?

    Hi,

    I agree with Bogdan.

    If the SPSetup account and farm account are two different accounts, you don't need to run stsadm command. If they are the same account, you need to run them.

    Thanks,
