Hi there, we have just uninstalled Veritas 10 and have rebooted as requested. As it has rebooted we have lost all admin rights off the users and the administrator. We get access is denied errors on most MMC apps on the 2003 server?

You've lost just local admin rights? I assume it's not a DC. Can the network admin account log into it?

Uninstalling Backup Exec is a pain. There 9032784290148578923795438905 registry settings you have to delete once you've "removed" it.

I'm not understanding then. Can you explain with more detail of what you mean by you've lost all admin rights of the users and administrators? Do you mean individuals that are setup in groups that have admin rights? If so, do members of Domain Admins or Enterprise Admins still have rights if they aren't using the actual administrator account?

When you log in as administrator and look at the rights of a folder, does it show all names that should be there? Does it show any SID's instead of group or user names?
