Machine "X" is not a valid server container. Error: 0x8000401a (The server process could not be started because the ArcGIS Server Container account(s) is/are not configured properly on all ArcGIS Server Container machines. Please make sure the ArcGIS Server Container account username and password is valid and identical on all machines in the ArcGIS Server deployment.)

I am running AcrGIS Server 10 for Java on a Windows 2008 machine.
I have installed the software using my domain login.  I am also a local admin on the server.
We domain policies set that prohibit me from changing the local security policies.
I have check user permissions on directories to ensure that they are set correctly.

What else do I need to do to get this working?

This waisting much of my time trying to configure this software.
