RADDBDIF error during installation of 4.6c on Windows 2000 Server

I am installing 4.6c on Windows 2000 server and towards the end of the installation, It reports an error executing report RADDBDIF.  This is my practice installation on the server.  I read SAP note 162266 which directly addresses this problem.  

I checked if the SAP service was running, and it was.  I logged onto the system using the SAP gui and started SE38.  I then executed the report manually and got the expected short dump.  Before the installation, I added the entry for the SAPTRANSHOST alias to the hosts file in windows.  I did everything that was stated in the note and I am still having the same problem.

This problem has to be something simple that I just don't know about.  I am stuck on that one step and I need to be able to get past it in order to complete the installation successfully.  Have any of you seen this before and can you tell me what you did to fix it?

Maybe the security privileges in your saploc and sapmnt sharing are wrong.
1. You should be able to read and write files in \\<servername>\sapmnt and \\<servername>\saploc
2. Users <SID>adm, SAPService<SID> should have privileges under this sharings. If you are installing under a Windows2000 domain or Active Directory, this users should have been created and given administrator rights
3. In RZ10, the instance profile parameters SAPTRANSHOST, DIR_TRANS and DIR_EPS should be checked and corrected. Maybe, SAPTRANSHOST should be changed to the name of your Transport Domain Controller.

Hope this helps.

Regards.

Andres.

Edit the file DB_IDES.R3S, CHANGE THE STATUS=ERROR TO STATUS=OK AND RUN THE R3SETUP, INSTALL THE GUI AND RUN THE SYSTEM REPORT RADDBDIF. THE ERROR WILL BE FIXED.

remember your <SID>adm, SAPService<SID> users should be MEMBERS OF = Administrators Group, Domain Users Group and SAP_<SID>_GlobalAdmin Group...

then i think you won't get the error

hope that helps

We were able to complete the installation successfully about 1 months ago.  The global admin user data was missing in the Win2000 server.  Cryptosid, your answer seems to be the most correect and so you get the points.  Perhaps you can help me with the other issue I will be posting in a few minutes.  Thanks everyone.
