Error during farm config: New-SPConfigurationDatabase failed with exception “The process does not passess the ‘SeSecurityPriviledge’ priviledge which is required for this operation.”

Today I tried to configure a new SharePoint farm. I got this error:
“The process does not passess the ‘SeSecurityPriviledge’ priviledge which is required for this operation.” – Although the account used to configure SharePoint is local administrator!!
After searching the internet I found that issue and a solution for that.
Check the Local Group policy or the Domain Group Policy and validate the Setting
Computer Configuration => Policies => Windows Settings => Security Settings => Local Policies => User Rights Assignments => Manage auditing and security log
If this setting is defined the account that is used to install SharePoint needs to be member of this setting. – Just add the account or the “local administrators” (“.\Administrators”) group.
