Hello all,

Thanks in advance for any help.

I was trying to change the Startup Service Account through SQL Enterprise Manager and got the "A required privilege is not held by the client." error.

I've read all those articles regarding this problem. And I was able to solve this problem on one of my server after I grant the "Administrators" group to "Default Access Permissions" in dcomcnfg.

But on the other machine, even I've changed this, I still got the same error. I even tried to add the user to "Act as a part of the operating system" policy, the result is the same error.

I just wonder, when we're modifying the Startup Service Account under Enterprise Manager, which account is being used? 'Coz the error "A required privilege is not held by the client." doesn't tell us which account doesn't have the enough privilege and what kind of privilege required.
