DB Access Account error when Adding WFE

If you get this error when attempting to add a WFE to a farm:

"SharePoint Products and Technologies Configuration Wizard"
"The username entered must be the same as the database access account for the server farm you wish to join. Either choose NT AUTHORITY\NETWORK SERVICE as the username or choose a different database name"

try changing the user account used for the Timer service and Central Admin app pool. Supposedly this is the account specified at installation AKA server farm account or AKA Database Access Account (as in the error message).

Confusing, I know.

This does the trick:

stsadm -o updatefarmcredentials -userlogin -password

iisreset /noforce

Note: you may also need to enable the SQL Server Browser service on the CA server.
