instead of local user account i have to give "Log on as:" a service permission to an active direcotory user. I am new to Active Directory, all i know about it is that it manages and controls permissions on domains, never had any hands on experience with it. So if i am given a AD username and password how do i give my service that logon, for example i am using this username for a local user account: ".\username", so basically my question is if the user is on AD and i m given the username and password to put it in my scripts how will that syntax differ? maybe something like "domainname\username"?

You are correct with the syntax "domainname\username".

As you already said, you need to give this user the "Log on as a service" right on the local computer. You can use the NTRIGHTS.EXE windows resource kit utility to accomplish this.
