Security issue

I have an issue while configuring websphere v6.1 for our application. To run our web application we need to set the security configuration under security-> Secure administration, application and infrastructure. When i try to set the local operating system configuration, the primary admin username and server identity in the websphere server v6.1, clicking ok button will show me the progress bar is running for some time and page cannot be displayed is seen.i had set a server session timeout to one hour.

Installation doc for our application states that create a primary admin user is as below.
“ Log on to the operating system using an administration account with sufficient privileges. For example, on Windows, you must log on using an account that is an explicit member of the local Administrators group. A domain-level administration account that inherits its permissions through a group does not have sufficient privileges.”

The admin department from our company has created the user as “db2admin” (not a domain level user) and made it as a member of Local Administrator Group. Then logged in to my pc as db2admin user and created a user called “SONORA” (our application specific user) and made it as a member of Local Administrator Group.

After I provide the primary admin user and server identity in websphere v6.1 and pressed the ok button then the server hangs after some time without any error message.

But, In websphere v6.0, I can able to set the same user id (“sonora”) as primary admin user and can run our application successfully.

Please guide us how to set the security settings to proceed further. I suspect something to do with the local administrative user privileges. Is there any special privileges needs to be set for the user.

Thanks in advance.
