I've moved our sharepoint server (MOSS 2007) from one domain to another following this procedure.

Everything seems to work OK but I've getting the error below in the event logs every five minutes. It seems pretty obvious that there's a service or job configured to use an account somewhere from the old domain but I'm damned if I can spot where. Can anybody help?

The Execute method of job definition Microsoft.SharePoint.Search.Administration.SPSearchJobDefinition (ID bd8cb4b6-d067-4053-a303-39b22fc1940e) threw an exception. More information is included below.

The specified account information is incorrect or not valid. Check that the correct account and password are being used.

We used to have a three domain setup, sharepoint server was in domain A, which had trusts with domains B and C. The server has been moved to domain B which now has a trust set with C.
