Administrator privileges

By med103 ·
Someone other than myself recently worked on a 2003 SBS while
I was on vacation. The server was set to back up to another
computer in my office and worked fin for several months. Now it
says it can't find that computers volume and that I don't have
sufficient privileges to access this computer (or other derivations
of insufficient privileges). I can't manage or log on to the other
computer from the server. I checked all the IP settings and the
other computer functions fine on the network. I am logged on
as an Admin, what could be wrong?

Log on with the Enterprise Adminsitrator account.

If all else fails, use the Directory Services Recovery user account and password.

Check your permissions.

checked the permission in the manage users area and there is
no option to manage the Administrators permissions. Sorry for
the ignorance, but why would I need to recover a user name and
