Did you try to install via "Add roles" or via the Stand-Alone installer?

Is UAC still on? Either turn it off (reboot) or open an elevated command prompt and run the setup. I assume you're a full admin on the system. If its a domain controller you need domain admin perms.

Also try to find  WSUSWyukonSetup*.log (should be under %TEMP% of the installign user) and post it here

I have full domain admin right, it's a default domain admin account. i run the cmd as a administrator but still got the error message, so in this case, I don't think disable UAC would help?

I didn't see the log in %temp%

Without the log it will be difficult to find out why its not able to create the required groups...

Is this a member server or a domain controller?
I believe it creates 2 groups, any got created? If yes, remove it before retrying the installation
