2008 Domain Controller - parameter is incorrect (c:\windows\system32)
Posted on 2010-08-19
Interesting that I have not encountered but everytime I run any manamgement tool from C:\Windows\System32 (i.e. dsa.msc, dns etc) I get the error "Parameter is incorrect".
I am only able to run tools under Domain "Administrator".....no other account works even if it is in the Domain\Administrators group. I checked permissions on C:\ (root) and \Windows\System32 and permission are inherited from Root drive with Domain\Administrators in the ACL but it does not work. I can only use the tools as the Administrator
I can only assume this is some extended 2008 security feature. I looked at UAC and made changes but no results.
Please give some insight.
