Why is ACCESS DENIED in LsaOpenPolicy?

I'm trying to open a policy handle to access protected storage.  I'm passing an access mask of POLICY_GET_PRIVATE_INFORMATION to LsaOpenPolicy to read protected storage and POLICY_CREATE_SECRET to write to protected storage.

When running from a Power User account, I get an ACCESS DENIED error when opening the policy handle.  Why?  Shouldn't I be able to store server passwords in protected storage from a Power User account?

No, the default privilege of the POWER USER group does not have access to the LSA policy information.  You need to use an account in the ADMINISTRATORS group.

Or you can use the delegate feature in active directory to give the user reset passwords permissions and this would work also.
