I am logged-on to the Windows 2000 Server domain controller as the domain
Administrator, and I want to view the Event Log, and Stop/Restart some
services on a Vista Business machine which a member computer in the domain.
I am receiving "Error 5: Access Denied" messages, although on one occasion I
was apparently able to stop/start a service, the problem returned
immediately after, following a message telling me that there was an issue
communicating with the Plug and Play manager or some such.
Is this normal? I tend to work this way for temporarily disabling the
Windows Firewall amongst other things if the firewall configuration is wrong
for me to remote-control the machine using NetSupport.
In an XP environment, this facility is still available with the firewall
enabled. I guess that's not so for Vista? Even so, I have had the user add
'remote service control', 'file and printer sharing', and some other things
to his exception list.
Can anybody help please?
I don't like Vista
