    Check the section of the installation guide on creating and preparing the windows domain with the necessary groups and accounts. Among several steps, these users you created on the domain should be local administrators. I apologize for not having the guide in front of me, but that section should help you insure you have all the correct rights/groups setup.

    Hi Lionel,

    The simplest way to do this is to use SAPINST to create the OS users.

    If you are want to create the domain users, login to the domain with AD privelages. Then run SAPINST from the Installation Master disk.

    Select SAP NetWeaver 7.0

    -> Software Life-Cycle Options


    > Additional Preparation Options


    > Operating System Users and Groups

    The installation will ask you for the SID information, etc and create the necessary users and groups. You should then be able to assign those users to the SAP services.
