SharePoint error-The password supplied with the username was not correct.

Few days back when I am trying to create a web application in SharePoint 2010 I got the below error. The error message is:

The password supplied with the username was not correct. Verify that it was entered correctly and try again.

After getting the above errot, I remembered I have changed my password recently. So now we need to update the password also.

For this Open the command prompt. Then navigate to
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\14\BIN and then type stsadm -o updatefarmcredentials -userlogin <domainusername> -password <newpassword>

Click on enter

It will give you message as "Operation completed successfully." if successfully executed as shown in the figure below.

In the next step do an IISRESET and then try creating web application, it will work fine.
