Consider the following scenario. You configure the Host Integration Service account to be a member of a local domain group. Then, you try to use the configuration utility in Microsoft Host Integration Server 2010 after you log on by using a user account from a child domain.
In this scenario, you may receive the following error message:
The account specified is not a member of the HIS Runtime group.
This problem occurs because members of a local domain group cannot be validated against the Host Integration Server Runtime group.
