Windows XP - MMC Snap In - Access Is Denied
Posted on 2005-03-15
I've just rebuilt my desltop, now running straight Windows XP with SP2 included.
I have an MMC which I use to connect to all my servers to check Disk Management (for free space) and Event Logs. Before I rebuilt the machine this worked fine. Since rebuilding I cannot do this from my PC.
I have tried from a Windows 2000 machine and it works fine.
I have created a new MMC and it still does not work.
As a result of this, I beleive it is an issue on my PC as pposed to an issue with any of the servers.
The error on the servers is for LDM - "80070005 - Access Is Denied".
Error Code: 2
Local Disk Management on my PC works fine for my PC. I simply cannot connect to any other computers for Disk Management.
For everything else, this works fine. Microsoft have a KB for the issue in Windows 2000 but not XP.
