A. When you try to access the Disk Management MMC snap-in (by going to the Storage branch in the MMC under Start, Programs, Administrative Tools, Computer Management), you might receive the following error:
"Access to Disk Manager on
You don't have access rights to the service."
You must be logged on as an Administrator to resolve this problem. A common cause is that the Distributed COM (DCOM) configuration for authentication might have been changed from Connect to Default. To resolve this situation, perform the following steps:
- Start the DCOM Configuration utility (go to Start, Run, and type dcomcnfg.exe).
- Select the Default Properties tab.
- Change the Default Authentication Level from Default to Connect and click OK.
- Restart the machine.
