Description Brian Huffman (dead mail address) 2012-06-05 18:23:40 UTC
I'm trying to run an installer that needs to add some values under CN=user-Display,CN=40C,CN=DisplaySpecifiers,CN=Configuration and I'm getting an access error:

modifyResponse(21) insufficientAccessRights (00002098: Object CN=user-Display,CN=40C,CN=DisplaySpecifiers,CN=Configuration,DC=xmen,DC=eti has no write property access)

However, when I try to add the same value using the ADSI tool (part of the Windows AD Toolset), it works.

Unfortunately there are a lot of similar additions and adding them manually (after finding them) is a daunting task...

I'm running as the Administrator of the domain, so this should work?

Here's some of the debug output when I attempt to run the program that makes this modification.  I've used these options: "samba -i -M single -d 10"

The installer doesn't run as administrator, it seems to
run as the machine account.
