How do I fix "You do not have access rights" when accessing Disk Management on remote computer in a Workgroup
Posted on 2016-07-22
Windows admins will be familiar with Computer Management, An awesome saved window for MMC. I'm getting Access Denied when I try to access Device Manager and "You do not have access rights to logical disk manager" I have created a reciprocal admin user on the remote machine (matching the local username and password exactly) and that allows me to access the services snap-in and others.
These computer are NOT on a domain, nor is that an option.
I have tried disabling UAC on remote computer
turning off firewall on both local and remote computers
recreating remote admin account on local computer and using that
Made sure that Remote Registry and Plug and Play services were running on the remote machine
All systems running Windows 10 Pro. Disk Management works fine when run from the local machine.
