Hi,

   I have a server (in a client) and i can not open any MMCs. When i client on the enterprise manager, it does not give me any errors, but it does not open.

   Same think appen with computer management and other tools that use MMC.

   What should i do ? reinstall enterprise manager? if so, can i reinstall only the enterprise manager without having to reinistall the entire engine (SQL Server 2000)?


    Thank you

What is the OS?

What happens if you hit start/run type in MMC and hit enter?

What kind of permission do you have on that machine? It's possible that mmc is blocked by domain group policy.

read through this thread: http://social.answers.microsoft.com...91b80ad7fe

it is for vista, but much of what is in there still applies to Win2k3

By the way, can you open a MMC window on a remore machine and connect to the target? As for group policy, if you can't open any mmc windows, you won't be able to see it, but you can check in these 2 folders:

C:\WINDOWS\System32\GroupPolicy\User\Scripts\Logon

C:\WINDOWS\System32\GroupPolicy\Machine\Scripts\Startup
