    SQL Account for Moss 2007

    I am trying to fix a major problem on my Moss 2007 Farm and when reinstalling Moss on a Front end server get a message

    The entered username must be the same as the database access account for the server farm

    when running the config wizard

    I fill in SQL server name and hit retrive databases

    is finds the config database

    but the account i created is not the one it fills in for database access account

    It tries to use an old account that was deleted last week (thats what caused all te problems)

    anyway I have created a new user in the config database with db-owner rights also member of domain admins group
    but wont work

    Am i missing something here?
