I get the following error when I try to install,

"INST0040W:The user name and password specified cannot be validated due to insufficent privileges of the current user. You must have "Act as part of the operating system" rights. If an invalid user name or passwords is entered the product will not install or function properly. "
The above error occurs in the "Security Options" page with a question
"Select an exiting username and password to use for starting the IBM HTTP Server service"
NB: I have logged in as a user with Administrator role and I am using the same username/password in this installation page.

Mini,
For installation, either the user has to be the administrator of the network or the local administrator should be a part of the OS. In your case, u have to make the local adminstrator as part of OS by selecting the option Control Panel ->Administrative tools-> Local Security settings.

Mini,
when u click on local settings, the window shows an option of local policies under which there is an option user rights assignment.
on clicking this option, the right pane shows an option as "act as part of Opertaing system".
right click that option, select the security settings and add administrator (which is the local administrator of the system). the settings will immediately take effect.
hope it helps

Thanks Paresh,
That worked. But I didn't understand, what it was meant for, because I was already using the user with the Administrator role which was part of OS. Or Is it bit different in win2000?

Mini,
I guess if you are logged in as the administrator of the network, this problem should not arise. But if you are logged in as a local administrator, the default settings dont take you to the OS levels. i am not sure whether this is specific to win2K.
Do you have any idea abt migrating applications already created on EJB1.0 to EJB 1.1 using VAJ4.0 as an IDE??I need some help urgently on this
Regards

I found that you must use to login as "administrator" to add the userID to the "Act as the part of Operating System". If it's not it won't work.
Even you login as other user which is already in administrative group is still not enough.
Finally remember to check your userID with the following steps:
1, UserID must be within "Administrator group"
2, Login as "administrator", then goto Administrative tools, open "Local Security Policy" => "Local Policy" => "User Rights Assignment" => "Act as part of the operating system", add the userID you want to use.
3, Do the same as step 2, but select "Logon as a sevice" instead of "Act as part of the operating system".
Goto Websphere, enable security, put the userID and password that you just added and run.
Good Luck.
