The process does not possess the 'SeSecurityPrivilege' privilege which is required for this operation.

    Question

  • I'm working on a new SQL 2008 Cluster install on a Windows 2008 Server.  everything looks good until 3/4's of the way through the install I get the following error "The process does not possess the 'SeSecurityPrivilege' privilege which is required for this operation." which kills my install.

    Here is the final error, from the Detail Log

     Slp: Exception type: Microsoft.SqlServer.Configuration.Sco.ScoException

    I have an admin account so it is not for lack of privladge on the box, I even had one of the Domain Admins give it a go to see if their permissions were required and they got the same error.

    I would appriceate any pointers on this.
