"The user does not have sufficient permission" RRS feed

  • Question

  • I recently built a SCOM 2007 R2 environment in my personal lab. I have 4 Windows Server 2008 boxes with various workloads running (Exchange 2007, SQL, WSUS, etc). After installing and configuring SCOM, I installed only the core Windows Server management packs and then I addressed the alerts that it generated. It's been running for about a week with no new alerts, so last night I installed the Exchange 2007 MP.

    When I opened the console I noticed that my Exchange server had not been discovered, and I have a "PowerShell Script failed to run" alert. The alert details are:

    "System.Management.Automation.MethodInvocationException: Exception calling "Connect" with "1" argument(s): The user xxx\xxx does not have sufficient permission to perform the operation."

    The account being referenced is my action account, which is in my Domain Admins group. Are there some additional rights that I need to grant to the action account?

  • Hi,

    For Exchange 2007 you need to enable discovery for each object. There is step by step info in the MP guide.
