SYMPTOMS

After you install Multilanguage Pack (MUI) and choose a preferred language for menus and dialog boxes, privileges that are defined in local security settings are not applied, and the following error messages appear in the Application event log:
Event Type: Warning
Event Source: SceCli
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1202
Date: 10/16/1999
Time: 10:13:10 am
User: N/A
Computer: Computername
Description: Security policies are propagated with warning. 0x534 : No mapping between account names and security IDs was done. Please look for more details in TroubleShooting section in Security Help.

Event Type: Error
Event Source: Userenv
Event Category: None
Event ID: 1000
Date: 10/16/1999
Time: 10:13:11 am
User: NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
Computer: Computername
Description: The Group Policy client-side extension Security was passed flags (17) and returned a failure status code of (1332).

CAUSE

When you choose a language in MUI other than English, editing group policies causes the account names for the default accounts in the Group Policy files to be replaced with the localized names. This causes the group polices not to be applied on English installations.

After you install MUI and modify the default language for menus and dialog boxes, all well-known security IDs (SIDs) such as Everyone, Authenticated Users, Interactive, and so on, are translated to the new language.

Local security settings are stored in the %SystemRoot%\Security\Secedit.sdb file, which is actually a Jet database. User and group accounts are stored as strings, not as SIDs. So, for example, after you change the language with MUI, the "Everyone" string cannot be mapped to a valid SID and privileges cannot be applied if they previously included an account whose name has changed.
