Trying to use Computer Management to see open files across the network.

 

I get the error when I'm logged into the machine with a user in the AD Built-in Administrators group.

 

Running MMC, I have the Shared Folder add-in, and try to open the treeview for Shared Folders -> Sessions  (or Open Files) and get “you do not have permissions to see the list of sessions from windows clients”

 

  1. What permission is missing for a login that's already in the Administrator group?
  2. This error doesn't occur for the main network administrator when logged in on that machine, but it still happens when running Computer Management pointing to that machine from another.

What is determining this and what am I missing? Thanks in advance for your help.
