We re running Windows 7 Enterprise X64. We have installed the admin pack on one of our machines. We have multiple admins with the same rights on the domain and groups. ON XP machines none have any problems with using admin pack to open and work with active directory. Now we have a few that can open and run active directory on the Windows 7 machines fine, and some that get any of the following errors.  Any ideas on how to fix this would be great.

1. Check that the Username is not locked
2. Re-add the machine to the domain
3. Make sure that you selected the correct domain(s) to administer and make sure the user has rights to manage it.

1. Username is not locked
2. This is happening on multiple machines
3. They have the same rights as the other admins.

This is a really weird one..Got us stumped.

Is your Domain controller 32 bit or 64 bit?
Your admin pack you installed is it for 32 bit or 64 bit?

Just troubleshooting now I am out of ideas.

We figured it out...We had to add a kerbos key and that fixed the issue. Really weird, but that took care of it. Thanks for all the help.
