Why is Active Directory Access Denied for Computer Management of Server

I am trying to use Active Directory to manage our companies servers and view event logs.  I am able to connect and view event logs for every computer but one, and the one I can not connect to is a Server.

How can I figure out why I can not connect and view the event logs or other items from the computer management window using Active Directory.  

I dont understand how my access can be denied for just this one server.

Both servers are running Windows 2003 Server and I am using the administrator account.

Are you sure they didn't change the admin account credentials at that server?  Can you log into the console and access the event viewer with those same credentials.

Thanks

Yes, if I remote directly to the computer using the same admin credentials I can access it no problem.

I just found another, more describtive error.  The server running AD is using W2K3 Standard, but the server I can not access is using W2K3 SBS.  

"Version of OS on computer is later than of local computer.  This operation is not available from local"

I guess I can not access this feature since the OS is older.  Good reason to upgrade to W2K8
