    In my w2k3 R2 SP2 platform when I try to activate the administrator console
    of the computer being member of the group of advanced users it shows me the
    message "This function is not supported on this system" preventing me to
    begin this administration console. Why?

    Many thanks in advance.

    "services" complement... i can't save this mmc console since when i try do it
    i obtain the message: "An unnamed file contains an invalid path"!

  3. Hello tom.doniphon,

    What kind of "administrator console" are you talking about? Also which "advanced
    users" group do you mean?

    Best regards

    i'm talking about the console obtained after pressing right button in "my
    computer" icon an choice "manage" option. As for the users , sorry, i mean
    "power users" group.

    Thanks again.

    Yes, with my administrator account I don't have problems to do it. With any
    other account i can't.

  7. Hello tom.doniphon,

    So it's permission related, use RUNAS to start it.

    Best regards

  8. As Meinolf said, it's permissions and you need to use RunAs to run it using an appropriate account that can run it.

    Curious, earlier you mentioned your account is part of a group called "Advanced Users." Exactly what group(s) is the (assuming this is an Active Directory group) the "Advanced Users" group part of in AD?
