Win2K - Can no longer access Disk Manage

By michael.b.simmons ·
I think this started when I ran DCPROMO to promote my Server from Stand Alone to a Domain Controller in a new Domain, then ran DCPROMO again to remove Active Directory. Anyway, I now cannot run Disk Manager. When I click on Disk Management (Local), I get a popup message, saying, "Access to Disk Manager on MYSERVER is denied. You don't have access rights to the service." In the status bar I see: FAILED connection to Logical Disk Manager Service. I am running this from the Administrator account. What could be the problem? I am at Build 2183. Also, the Disk Defragmenter is acting strangely. I don't see any errors, but when I click on "Analyze" or "Defrag", nothing happens even though the dfrgntfs.exe process appears in Task Manager.

Try logging on to the local machine as using the local machine's Administrator account as opposed to a domain account. If this does not work you can change the domain status a standalone workgroup and log on as a local administrator.

Hope this helps
