Print Management Access Denied

On my SBS 2008 box I am logged in as Administrator.  When I try to modify or delete any of the printers I get the an Access Denied error.
1 Solution
Try right clicking the printer --> properties --> security.... See if there are any entries that deny access, or indeed any entries for Domain Admins at all... Deny takes precedent over Allow.
By default when installing SBS 2008 it disables the Administrator account.. did you reenable it or are you using an account that had Administrator priviliges?


SBS 2008 like vista has the UAC.. so you have to do the right click and run as admin.
