How to run Multiple Analysis services\Analysis instances with the same  Windows service account?

There are 3 independent Analysis machines\Server\instances( eg  A,B,C) installed with  their respective AF Analysis service.

On two(A,B) of the Analysis engine\Servers  I am using the same  windows service account  to run their respective Analysis services,  and then run without any error, but when I use the same creds on the other 3rd machine(C) to run its Analysis service  the following error is generated "Error 1069: The service did not start due to a logon failure".

I am not sure why is it working for the other two(A,B) and not this one(C).

Furthermore as a workaround I also added the  Windows service account as an administrator on the 3 rd Analysis machine\Server(C) and also created a mapping for the windows service account  with PI Administrator Identity but still it gave the same error.

Would request you let me know why such error is thrown despite using the same cred and  also how can one troubleshoot such a scenario.

Many thanks in advance
