Hi,
  I have SnapDrive Installed, and the SnapDrive service run as a user that I created called xxx, user part of local admin, and the MMC works fine, but when I log to the server with my user name, I am part of the Domain admin, and the domain admin group is in the local administartors group.
when I open Computermanagement and click on Snapdrive I receive an error

Unable to communicate with snapdrive service
Please ensure that you have sufficient privileges and the snap drive service is running
Access is denied

The snap drive service is running.
Thanks.

I ran into something similar the other day. This is a Snap server or just a Snap drive.

What we found out is the Snap Server was set to be the Domain master browser and had Netbios over TCP/IP enabled. Since it was set to be domain master browser, that conflicted with the PDCe who is the local domain master browser. What we did is made sure Netbios over TCP/IP was enabled. Then we prevented this from being a domain master browser. Then we rebooted the snap server so it will go out and seek the domain master with a Netbios broadcast.

Here is the post we were working on:

The forced accepted solution is wrong. Sorry guys. I'm having the same issue. The tag on the original question was netapp. Not that old adaptec snapdrive POS ( that doesn't mean point of sale ) that was out there. I'm running snap drive on my 2008 R2 server and when I try to connect or create a disk in the snap drive MMC I get an error denied dialog box. This is an error when trying to communicate from my server via ISCSI to my IBM Branded N3600 which is just a rebranded netapp NAS. IThe snapdrive service is running under a domain account with local admin access. That same domain account is in the admin group on the filer. Doesn't make any sense why I would be getting this error.
