Can't start CSAuth on local computer under a user account

I have installed Cisco ACS on Window Server 2003. I can start all the services as a local administrator. But then I following the installtion guide to start the service using user account. The services won't start.

When I try to start CSAdmin, I got an error message: Could not start the CSAdmin service on Local Computer. Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly.

When I try to start CSAuth, I got a different error message, which is: Windows could not start the CSAuth on Local Computer. For more infomation, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 74.

Domain user password is OK!

Make sure that the user running acs services should have domain admin rights along with act as a part of OS and logon as service rights in domain security policy.
