I have a P4 1.6G machine. I am trying to install Websphere 4.0/Advanced Edtion in the Win2000 system. I have the administrator's privilege. I have installed Oracle 8.17 on my machine and it runs correctly.
But every time when I tried to install it, I was told that the username/password can not be validated with sufficient privilege, and maybe the program can not be function properly. I could finish the installation. But after the computer was restarted, the HTTP Server can be started, but the WebSphere Admin Server can not be started because the ID can not be validated.
Even I changed the username/password into administrator in the "Services" windows, it still refused to start because of same reason.
Can any one give me some ideas how to make it work?
Thank you very much!

Try changing the services entry to start under the local system account rather than a user account. WebSphere does not need to run under a useid even though the install prompts for one. And don't forget if you run any WiNT service under a userid id and the password for that userid is changed on the system the service will not start because the password entry in the service entry is NOT updated. You have to do it manually!

I think it another problems that the authority is not
sufficient error occurs in the middle of installation, and that
admin server does not start.
It is a known defect if the head of a message is INST004.
This message can be disregarded.
In the course of installation, the input of the user id and the
password which access repository is necessary.
The authority of "connect", "resource", and "dba" is necessary
for this user.
Did you grant authority correctly?
What message is recorded in tracefile?
Thanks,
taro

Well, I think the problem is something like this. A User Account on Windows 2000/XP doesn't contain all security permissions, even though its in Administrator group. But the local "administrator" user does have all the rights, and when I say all rights, I mean Operating System level rights. So you have two options:
1. Log in as "administrator" and install WAS.
2. You change your user account security permissions. To do that...do the following.
- Right click on My Computer and click "Manager".
- In "Services and Applications", go to WMI Control (Windows Management Instrumentation) and right click and then click "properties". A WMI Control Properties window will opwn, click on "Security" tab and check security on each folder and subfolders. Give your User Account all security permissions for each folder and subfolder...I leave it to you to figure out how to do that, that shouldn't be difficult.
- NOw try and install WAS again with your user account. Hopefully, everything should be fine this time.
Hope this helps.
Vinod.

Your Admin account may need additional priviledge, "Act as part of the operating system" and "Log on as a service" are required.
You can assign them through "Local Security Settings" from "Administrative Tools".

I had similar problems. Make sure of the following:
- the account you use to install websphere should be a local account on your computer
- It should have admin privileges
- It should also have additional privileges ("act as part of operating system" ). I generally assign my local id all the privileges that the "administator" id has and that works fine.

Hi Friends,
I tried to install WSphere 4.0.1 on windows 2000 .
It took my Network userID and password for the first time , and when second time i tried to re-install the server then it was not accepting the Network user id and password , so i entered local Administrator login of the system ..
