I have installed Sharepoint 2007 with Complete/Server Farm settings. When I supplied the credentials for the account in the configuration wizard (installer), I supplied another loal account (the name of the account) and the password. This is an admin account on the OS/Windows Server 2008, and is labelled as System Account in Sharepoint Central Admin.
I specified just the name of the account as it is local. Is this perhaps the cause of the error?
When I go Operations > Servers in Farm (in Topology) and select the current server, I get an access denied error (I am doing the admin tasks once the server is setup).
How can I resolve this? Do I need to setup AD?
