I click the disk management in computer management and get the 'Unable to connect to Logical Disk Manager service'.

I have looked around a lot and will describe what I have done and checked:
--Checked HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\AppID to make sure 'Administrators' have access.
--Services status: DCOM Server Process Launcher=Started/Automatic
COM+ Event System=Started/Automatic
COM+ System Application=Started/Manual
Plug and Play=Started/Automatic
Remote Procedure Call (RPC)=Started/Automatic
Remote Procedure Call (RPC) Locator=Started/Manual

I have posted screen shots of the complete Services on the server.

Here are the results from starting logical disk manager admin service.  I tried this one already.  

Thank you for the response.  This is a strange error.  The only thing running on this computer is VMWare Server 2 and a RAID Utility program.

Yes, I have seen that one and that is when I checked both Logical Disk services and made them both automatic and restarted.  Then I moved to the Plug and Play and RPC services since those are dependencies. of so many services.

When I use Safe Mode I can access the disk manager

When I use Safe Mode with Networking I get the exact same error.

What network service can create a situation where the disk manager is either used/unavailable or disabled.  Could it be something with VMware Server?

Any ideas?

did you try to turn off vmware server and access the disk management in normal mode / safe with networking ?

one more idea - try to update your NIC drivers.

I stopped services on the items shown on the screen shot.  It didn't help to resume connectivity to the Logical Disk Manager.  I updated the onboard Intel nic which is the only adapter in the machine and that didn't help connectivity to the Logical Disk Manager.  I even disabled the RAID utility.

That is where it stands.  Disk Management works in Safe mode only.

Since the services that needs to run is Logical Disk Manager for Disk Management are running (Plug and Play and RPC) and the dependencies of all services are running I am at a loss.

What else is there to check and troubleshoot?

you mentioned that safe mode with networking - it does not work, how about disabling nic while in that mode and trying to check if the service can run ?
i'm trying to determine if that is not the nic card issue ...
