SQL Enterprise Manager.msc opens only for local administrator

In SQL 2000 Enterprise Manager will not open for me when I'm logged on to the server using my domain account. I get the warning " MMC cannot open the file e:\program files\microsoft sql server\80\tools\binn\sql server enterprise manager.msc
This may be because the file does not exist, is not an MMC console, or was created by a later version of MMC. This may also be because you do not have sufficient access rights to the file."
I have sdded my domain account with full control permissions to the file.

 If I use the runas command on the SQL Server Enterprise Manager.MSC, it will open using the local administrator account.
Thanks,

That is an issue with NTFS Permissions.

Check the Folder/File Permissions.

Hi blossompark,

It may also be acorruption in the mmc, you can recreate it by:
1. click start|run, type mmc click okay
2. click console|add/remove snapin, then click add
3. select "Microsoft SQL Enterprise Manager" from the list and then click add
4. click close, click okay
5. click console, click save as
6. Save the console to the location of the existing file in order to overwrite it.

If the mmc is corrupt isit likely  that it would open under a different account?

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

Maybe?!?  If the persmissions look okay then try saving the mmc file to the desktop first if this works then it is likely to be corruption.

It can also be a policy restriction, to "non-administrative" users.

Can you open any other mmc.
