I am a domain admin and would like to remotely manage my Vista users through the Computer Management console. Whenever I try to connect remotely to a Vista machine, I get an access denied error. How do I fix this? Group policy?

As it is a vista Machine we might have to make certain changes on the workstation itself.
You can refer to this link,

This isn't Remote Desktop Connection that I am talking about. I am talking about using the Computer Management console to connect to other machines on our network.

Try this
~ HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal
Server\WinStations\RDP-and check if  Tcp is present and have the port as 3389.
~ Check windows\registration folder. If none have full control then Give Everyone "read
only" permission and System and Administrator as "Full control".
~ Run the following command:
net localgroup "Administrators" "NT Authority\Network Service" /add (It Adds the
Network service to the local administrator group)

Unfortunately that did not solve the problem. I even disabled the windows firewall on that computer to no avail. Are there any services that I need to enable to get this to work?

I think I solved the problem. Several of the records on my DNS server were incorrect. The host and pointer records for several of my clients did not match up with the appropriate IP addresses. Once I corrected this issue, I was able to remotely administer all of the client computers that were giving me errors previously. Thanks for you help.
