Setting up sql server on latop -- getting error Token-based server access validation failed with an infrastructure error
I installed SQL Server on my laptop (windows 8). When I try to connect to the database engine i get the following error
"Token-based server access validation failed with an infrastructure error"
Microsoft SQL Server 2008

Try running SSMS as an administrator to see if the message goes away.
Edit: My thought is an issue with it not passing an admin token.
I tried that :(
I tried turning off the UAC based on what i read online and that didn't work either
