  • I ran into this issue myself.  Go grant your FAST user account the privilege Allow log on locally.  That worked for me.  Give it a try.

  • Both SharePoint Farm and Fast Search Server need to be connected to a domain, so make sure you have a domain controller somewhere (and it's require to Allow Log on locally as Corey point out).

  • All recent posts doesn't help. But here are the solution: Use the DNS name of your domain in the username field. For example: domain.local\username. That helps.

    Great thanks to:

  • The trick to change domain\user to domain.local\user didn't worked in my situation.

    My issue was due to the fact that my server name wasn't at the root of my domain.

    So I change my "Primary DNS Suffix of this computer" from xyz.domain.local to domain.local.

    And then it work with domain.local\user
