Error 2114: Failed to add privileges

I'm installing SAP_WAS DevEd 6.3 Beta2 on W2K SP3.

I've created a new user (sapuser) with full administrative rights on the local machine (BXABIOZA01) and am getting the following errors during installation:

Error 2114 (The server service is not started) in execution of a "NetServerGetInfo" function, line (233), with parameter (BXABI0ZA01,101).

MOS-01224 Failed to add privileges 'seTcbPrivilege seAssignPrimaryTokenPrivilege SeIncreateQuotaPrivilege' to account 'BXABIOZA01\sapuser' on host 'BXABIOZA01'

Has anyone any ideas why this occurs and what I might do to avoid it?

Hi Keith,

did you try another installation prior to creating the new account and using it for the installation? If this is the case then please uninstall first the Sneak Preview edition, reboot your computer, alog in as "sapuser", delete then (if still existing) the directory similar to c:Program Filessapinst. Then start the installation program again.

If you still run into the error please take the discussion offline, send all the information you have available to Once we found a solution we will post it again on this forum.

Hey Keith.

I don't know if you solved the problem, I haven't seen a new reply to this posting yet. I was having the same problem installing the WAS 630 Sneak Preview in a thinkpad with Win 2K.

After some digging I was able to install succesfully, Here are the 2 things I had to do:

- Enable File and Printer Sharing in my Network configuration

- Manually grant the following User rights to the Local Admins (I am not connected to a domain) user group: 1) Act as Part of the Operating System, 2) Increase Quotas and 3) Replace a process level token. For some reason my user LOCALHOSTusername had those User rights, but they were not listed for the Local Admins group.

(see th SAPWAS 630 Win SAPDB installation Guide in for details about granting these user rights)

Good luck!
