    Access is Denied from VAMT, Remote Event Viewer, Group Policy Results Wizard

    Have just set up some Windows 7 clients on site running off a existing 2008r2 server, but I cant seem to do most things remotely from our server or between machines eg.

    Event Viewer > Connect to another computer
    VAMT 2.0 > Update computer info
    Beginning Sophos installation from Enterprise Console over AD

    .. everything is 'Access is Denied' or similar

    Google is pointing towards DCOM problems and how to troubleshoot, but everything seems to be fine with that except for running the DCOM diagnostics which is saying 'Access is Denied'

    Can Ping fine, have also double checked IP settings. Group policy also applying fine

    Strangely enough it all works fine on Windows XP machines, or if the program lets me use alternative credentials to connect I can use the local administrator accounts to access the machines fine.

    Anyone have any ideas? It would be very much appreciated!

    Never mind, discovered that domain admins weren't made part of the local admins when joining the domain for whatever reason, even if the client left and re-joined the domain. Weird
