Error accessing remote computer system properties via compmgmt.msc as Administrator.
Posted on 2008-06-26
I have a domain controller called corp-dc-01, and a mail server called corp-mx-01. When I log in to corp-dc-01 as administrator, go to computer management, connect to corp-mx-01, and try and display the system properties (by right clicking Computer Management and going to Properties), I get an error: "Win32: Access Denied"
I copied the administrator account to a test account in the same OU, and can successfully view the system properties from the test account - so it seems that no Group Policies are blocking that access.
What steps can I take to help get to the root cause of the Administrator account not having access to the mx system properties remotely? It's also affecting about 30 workstations, so I'm hoping that I can resolve it fairly easily once we come up with a resolution.
