    Hi I'm running 2008 server (32bit) I'm getting access denied when trying to
    connect (using NLB Manager and wbemtest) between my servers using any other
    account other than the administrators. I have set up the same account (not
    in a AD) on each box as and added them to the administrators group but both
    NLB manager and wbemtest fail unless I specifically use the administrtor
    account. These are all clean machines I cannot find any additional
    privalidges that the administrator account has - even trying wbemtest on the
    local machine fails with access denied. Anybody got any ideas?

    I should add I have tried turning off the firewall on 2008 - BUT since
    administrator account works fine (but its not a great choice to use for
    security reasons) I'm assuming its some kind of privilage that I'm missing
    out on when I create a new admin level account.
