AIF inbound requires that we change the default owner of inbound files.  As explained in Microsoft KB article 947721 this setting is not available in security policy settings list.  It refers to article 214752 which gives an example How to add custom registry settings to Security Configuration Editor.  But this example is not clear to me and it is about XP anyway.  I need assistance on how to change the default owner in Windows 2008 when the policy is not exposed.  Thank you.

The following AIF application error is being displayed:

In %WINDIR%\inf\sceregvl.inf, add following lines.

in section [register registry values]
MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\NoDefaultAdminOwner,4,%NoDefaultAdminOwner%,3,0|%DefaultOwner0%,1|%DefaultOwner1%


in section [strings]
NoDefaultAdminOwner = "System objects: Default owner for objects created by members of the Administrators group"
