I tried to replace the Farm Account. I created a new local account: farm.account.

In the SP admin, I went to Manage Service accounts (I think) and changed the account used, using the drop down, I selected: Farm Account.

I than selected to register a new managed account, and put the user name and password.

After that: I get the error: enter image description here

Running the configuration wizard. I get an error - from the error log:
