    Yes. I'm login as Administrator. This is a 2003 ENT Server and I'm doing this using VNC client. The server does not have a keyboard/Monitor installed.

    Are you the admin for this server?

    I know of a lot of people, myself included, that still believe in security through obscurity as another layer of defense.

    It could be that the admin account was renamed and you aren't actually on as the admin.
