Symptom
When you try to run the adconfig /validateinstance instance command in the domain from a Windows XP Service Pack (SP2) computer that has .NET 2.0 Service Pack 1 (SP1) installed, the command fails. Additionally, you receive the following error message:

Error while searching for group with security identifier (SID) type [BuiltinAuthorizationAccessSid]: The parameter is incorrect.

From the same computer, the following commands work as expected: 

    /listinstance /domain:<domain> 

    /createtemplates:<ca> 

    /enabletemplates:<ca>

Even installing .NET 2.0 SP1 on the domain controller did not help.
Resolution
Run the adconfig /validate instance command from the domain controller.

Note Installing from a computer that is not a domain controller is supported, provided it is run from any computer in the same site and domain.
