Help with WDS - Configuring server properties RRS feed

  • Question

  • I've installed Windows Server 2008 R2 on a VM, and installed the WDS role. I'm able to add a server to WDS - the local machine - and I can add images to the Boot and Install group. However, whenever I attempt to adjust any properties for the server I received an error message:

    Server Properties Error dialog box: "Access is denied"

    What little information I could find said this was because of Admin issues on the machine, but whether I'm logged into the domain as myself (and I'm in the local admin group) or as the default admin on the machine, I still receive the error. Something else I came across said I need to be a domain admin, not just a domain user, to make this sort of change. Strange that, considering I was able to add the server and configure it then without issue.

    I'm attempting to set up a test WDS server so I can see firsthand how it works with MDT2010.
