SharePoint 2010, I am trying to change the Farm Account. I made the change to a new farm account under Central Admin > Security > Configure Service Accounts. The change seems to have gone through, however, when I delete the old user account that was
being used for the Farm Account and I try to backup sharepoint it fails. If I re-create the old farm account in Active Directory (don't change anything in Central Admin) I can backup again. The specific error I get from STSADM is "The specified user or domain
group cannot be found". I'm assuming that the old Farm Account still have something it's holding onto in SharePoint 2010 that the new farm account should have and doesn't.
