    Reset Security Settings to Default

    As much as I hate to admit this, I changed the Virtual Server 2005 R2
    Security permissions so that the Administrator Account no longer has Full,
    Modify, View, Remove, Change Permissions and Control. Don't ask me what I
    was thinking. So now I am having issues not being able to configure or
    change certain options.

    Anyways, is it possible re-enable these settings? I have no problem
    uninstalling if that is what it takes but thought I should ask first.
    Basically I just installed it for testing purposes at this point. This is on
    a Windows Server 2003 R2 SP2.

    Thank you,

    Steve

    try below step if it fix your problem
    To fix this problem, you must reset the DCOM permissions for the

    01. Open Component Services from the Administrative Tools folder of the
    Start menu.
    02. Expand Component Services.
    03. Expand Computers.
    04. Expand My Computer.
    05. Expand DCOM Config.
    06. Right-click Virtual Server and press Properties.
    07. Select the Security tab.
    08. Press Customize in the Launch and Activation Permissions area.
    09. Press Edit.
    10. In the Group or user names list, press Authenticated Users.
    11. Select the Allow box for Launch Permission in the Permissions for
    Authenticated Users list and press OK.
    12. Press Customize in the Access Permissions area.
    13. Press Edit.
    14. In the Group or user names list, press Authenticated Users.
    15. Select the Allow box for Access Permission in the Permissions for
    Authenticated Users list and press OK.

    Thank you Eric for the information. Unfortunately after making the changes
    listed below and logging on to the Virtual Server, the Server Security
    Properties are still displaying the message that the user does not have
    sufficient access. All of the permission options are grayed out as well.

    Does the Virtual Server Service need to be restarted by chance? I cant think
    of anything else.
