Error during install of MOSS 2007 - The process does not possess the 'SeSecurityPrivilege' privilege.

I got a strange error while installing MOSS 2007 yesterday at a client. I've installed MOSS a hundred times, so I knew everything was ok. The error I was getting was "

11/26/2007 16:20:47  7  ERR  Failed to create the configuration database. An exception of type System.Security.AccessControl.PrivilegeNotHeldException was thrown.  Additional exception information: The process does not possess the 'SeSecurityPrivilege' privilege which is required for this operation."

This post I read pointed out that  the user running the install needs to have the “manage auditing and security log” privilege. You can see below that even though I was a local admin, I didn't have that privilege. The permission was changed, I logged out and back in, and the install worked fine.

Windows Vista and Windows Live Blogger

This post was made by Windows Live Blogger. Very nice. So much easier to post pictures and rich content. I'm loving it. No more uploading image, and editing HTML. ug. Freedom from the tyranny of the web browser.
