XP SP3 and Server 2003 SP2 (not sure about Vista), include MMC 3.0. I'm not sure whether this is relevant or not?

I've just had a look - XP clients are running SP3 and 2003 servers are running SP2.
I've tried creating a new console on a machine with MMC 3.0, same story - works fine as an Administrator, but not as a member of Staff
Totally baffled by this one!

Are you trying to create a custom snap-in? And if so, to perform what task(s)?
1st July 2008, 11:50 AM #5
Yes I am, I'm trying to create it with the sole task of 'Reset Password'.
I've also just tried creating an empty mmc console, I can't even open this as a member of Staff (with Local Admin rights!).

From memory you need to delegate control to a user so they have the rights to change user passwords.

Cheers for the reply! I've just double checked, I have delegated control to the appropriate groups of staff to reset user passwords.
Can't understand it, works for 2 years with no problems and then all of a sudden it stops working!

Does anyone have any further ideas on this? Any pointers appreciated.

Was this ever solved?
Ive got this exact same problem here.

Just a quick addition to this although it's not directly related..
I hit a problem with GPO editor with the error:
This KB article gave me a clue:
MMC could not create the snap-in. The snap-in might not have been installed correctly.
Name: Group Policy Object Editor
"Snap-in failed to initialize" error message when you open Microsoft Management Console
... but the actual problem was caused by a rogue comma which had appeared at the end of the PATH variable. Delete that in the PATH var' and apply it... All fixed
Just figured I'd share.
