In the Websphere administration console under Security > Global Security, when I try to tick "Enable Administrative Security", I get the following message:

Validation failed: SECJ7724E: Error in the user registry configuration unable to verify access to the user registry.

My WebSphere is a local installation. I cannot add any user or group while the administrative secirity is still disabled.

What/where is this user registry they are talking about? How can I enable this Administrative Security?
