MOSS 2007 Beta2 Installation Issue

Issue Description:

When running the configuration wizard for Sharepoint 2007 I get an error on step 4 saying: System.InvalidOperationException: This access control list is not in canonical form and therefore cannot be modified.

How to solve this problem:

This issue will occur if you are using Sysinternal's Newsid utility to reset the SID of the machine or image.

To work around this issue do the following:

Remove the Office Server Beta install.

 Join a workgroup.

  Remove machine account from domain.

 Run sysprep from Windows Support Tool's

 Reboot and rejoin the domain.

 Install the Office Server Beta.

You can also build the server from scratch and not use NewSID.
