I am on a Win Server Standard FE box and am trying to access a WinXP's task scheduler but I get a "You do not have permission to access this computer." whenever I do.

-Both the Task Scheduler and Remote Registry server are running and I even restarted them just to test
-I can access the computers services but as soon as I go to the task scheduler I get the above error
-I disabled the windows firewall
-I can navigate to C:\Windows\Tasks and see the current tasks

Are you in the 'domain admins' group, or a user in the 'Administrators' list on the remote computer ?

The Ultimate Checklist to Optimize Your Website

Websites are getting bigger and complicated by the day. Video, images, custom fonts are all great for showcasing your product/service. But the price to pay in terms of reduced page load times and ultimately, decreased sales, can lead to some difficult decisions about what to cut.

Nope.  I can access the user's registry remotely.  I went in and added the domain admins permission to that folder anyway and still cannot access the user's Task Scheduler.

Lets look at your registry permissions on the XP machine.

Goto HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurePipeServers using 'regedit'

Right click on SecurePipeServers, and select 'Permissions'
Add "LOCAL SERVICE" to the list, and select 'Full Control'

Then try it again.

Do you have access to another Windows XP machine ?
Lets see if you can connect from one to the other.

Perhaps the 'remote registry' client on Windows 2008 is not backward compatible with the service on XP.

Please also check if your "Remote Procedure Call (RPC)" service is running, and set it to auto start.

Hmm, it works from another XP machine but not from the server or from Windows Standard Server SP2.

Install service pack 3 and all the updates.

You should offer more points next time. =)
