The SSP Timer Job Distribution List Import Job was not run

I used to get this error very often in Event Log: The SSP Timer Job Distribution List Import Job was not run. Reason: Logon failure: unknown user name or bad password After a quick search in net, I found the resolution for this. It is a simple 3 steps: Here, "newPassword" is the password which you use it for MOSS account. 1. On the machine where Central Administration resides, execute the following command: stsadm -o updatefarmcredentials -userlogin "domain user" -password "newPassword" 2. iisreset /noforce (optional) 3. Execute the following command: stsadm -o updateaccountpassword -userlogin "domain user" -password "newpassword" -noadmin It solved the problem! You can get more information here .
