Assigning Reporting services rights to users

Issue found in Power BI Report Server 
Everything works with the original service account which was used at the time of installation. Now we need to change the service account, while doing this we are getting following error after changing to different service account.
Yes we validated that this new service account is assigned database role of db_owner and RSExecRole.
Same new service account works for MSSQLSERVER and it does not work for PBIRS.

This is the error.

System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException (0x80131904): Windows NT user or group '(null)' not found. Check the name again.
