On a Windows Server 2003-based computer, you have an administration tool or a script that uses the Active Directory Service Interfaces (ADSI) IADs interface to manage security descriptors. You load a security descriptor for editing by using the administration tool or the script. When you try to store the security descriptor, you may receive an error message that resembles the following error message:

The security ID structure is invalid.
Facility: Win32
ID no: 80070539

This problem may occur even though you have hotfix 840885 installed.

Note: This problem may also occur in Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008.
