since configuring a Windows Web Server 2008 R2 x64 to be hardened for an internet-facing deployment I receive this:
"Device Manager is running in read-only mode because you are running it on a remote computer."
when entering Device Manager.
I have tried reversing the changes I have made, such as:
- Re-adding Client for Microsoft Networks
- Re-enabling NetBIOS over TCP-IP
- Re-adding File and Printer Sharing
- Disabling the Windows Firewall in all profiles (public, domain, private)
I get no joy. It looks like a Microsoft ballsup. I'll try and use Process Monitor to have a look. Google returns only 1 page for this error.
