Access is denied to start service

Today I had an issue with starting a service under a different account. I was getting the message 'Access is denied'.

It's good to know that it was an account Access is Denied by starting service from a domain in another Active Directory Forest. The account is in domain Forest1DomainA. De server in domain Forest2DomainA. Between the domains implementing a One Way Trust. In the eventvwr no error's.

The solution was to make use of the User Principal Name (UPN) but the SAMAccountName. User@Forest1DomainA.local does not work, but Forest1DomainAUser does work.
