Windows server 2003

have you seen the thread

It appears that Windows Server 2003 does not give the
CreateToken privilege to the local system account.

That's perhaps because security has been tightened on that box, see 
and two new special accounts are present by default.

The solution implemented in the thread above (create a new account)
can cause trouble because many packages expect uid 18 to be
the privileged uid. Of course uid 18 could be assigned to that
new account, but that might have undesirable side effects.

Although I have been unable to find much, this issue will
eventually need to be documented and to have a recommended
solution. There must be a control panel or wizard somewhere.
