Can't connect to Logical Disk Manager?

Hi Folks,

In an attempt to access disk management (Schijfbeheer) I bump into a 'Cannot connnect to Logical Disk Manager'error stating that the RPC service is unavailable. I have 1 internal harddisk and 1 external harddisk btw. The first is 80 GIG and the second app. 500.

Now I checked the services and they are running including the dependencies. I do have some services set to manual, but that wouldnt cause this problem I think.

Anyone any idea?

Kind regards,

Dweep

In addition I just found a few other peculiarities >

I cannot analyze or defragment anything. Pressing the button presses the button but that it. Also > using a vbs script to defragment all disks doesn't work anymore. My installation of Winbloze is new. In my old installation I did not have these problems.

Correction: in that old install I did have some probs with the script, but those were solved after I installed script56. Now I just installed it but no analyzing of defragemnting can be done.....

Solved! enabling the DCOM Server Launcher resolves this issue. That is changin its startup mode to automatic instead of manual.

Thanks,
