Reconnecting to sharepoint farm with NT Authority\Network Service

Reconnecting to sharepoint farm with NT Authority\Network Service

Reconnecting to sharepoint farm with NT Authority\Network Service

(OP)
I am having the same problem as thread820-131463.
See below for my specific issue:

The problem:

* Our company's WSS 3.0 sharepoint database recently became corrupted (still unsure what caused the corruption...). While the database was rebuilding we disconnected the farm. Now when we attempt to use the Sharepoint Products and Technologies Wizard to reconnect it asks for the Database Access Account for the configuration database. It is insisting that we use NT Authority\Network Service but if you do not supply a password (NT Authority\Network Service does not have a password) you cannot click next.

Steps we have tried:

* We have also tried to use a local user that is under the db_owner server role and are still told to use NT Authority\Network Service.
* We have also tried use psconfig.exe in the command line but get errors there as well when supplying no password.



Is there any way to reconnect to the farm?

Thank you for your help.
