  • You must be a member of the local administrators group for this. From cmd.exe

    net localgroup administrators

    to check it.

  • Hi This is not a permission issue, I am logging in as administrator with full access, the server has been renamed recently, however in the server console its still taking the old hostname. Also on the server console it says restart pending. We have restarted the server but still the same error appears. Also the domain and work group option is graded out and further checking i got something ralated to the network driver issue. any further ideas ?
