Win2k8 svr access denied when adding TCP/IP printer [message #163367] Fri, 29 May 2009 16:49 Go to next message

Hi all,

I have a Windows 2008 server x64 with the printer server role installed. I
am trying to add the first printer so I enter the TCP/IP address and as soon
as I click OK I get an Access Denied message. I do not see where this
Access Denied message is coming from. It leaves nothing in the event log.
There is no ACL on this printer. It is a basic TCP/IP printer. Why is it
complaining?

Thanks
Pete

Hello Peter,

You work as administrator on the server?

Best regards

Hi Meinholf

> You work as administrator on the server?

Yes my domain account is a member of a domain global group that is a member
of the local Administrators group. This is why I'm confused why it is
complaining about Access is denied. Nothing should be denied to an
administrator. Can it not handle nested groups?

thanks
Pete

And for some reason my remote desktop is no longer working even tho I have
it turned on.

I found this in the event log. But this happened in the middle of the
night. I was not working on the server in the middle of the night.

Well I see SP2 for Windows 2008 is out now. I installed it and it corrected
both my problems. I can now RDP into my server and add a TCP/IP printer
port.

thanks
Pete

Install the Remote Server Admin tools for print and launch
printmanagement.msc for any print related functions on server.

Thanks for the advice. I wasn't aware of those. Those are on page 462 of
the MCSE upgrade book that I'm going through and I'm not to that page yet
:)
