You do not have permission to modify the group

Posted by chrisbeams on May 8, 2010

Seen this one a few times, seems to be a bug in the windows 2008r2 tools, you get it when you attempt to add to a group you dont have permission on.. looks like japanese characters

    Yes, got the same. Strange that there’s still nothing from M$ about it.
    At least I’m not alone…

    haha weird, I’ve never seen that… but at least if I do now I’ll know not to worry too much about it 🙂

    I’m getting the same error. Have you confirmed that this is a bug? Or have you found a fix to this?

    I am having the same issue and I have not had any success. In addition, I have a user that appears to have the same configuration, and they are able to modify or add users to distribution groups.

    In Active Direct, I have taken a known user who works, but i am not able to get new users the ability to modify Member group permissions.

    This is very odd – have you had any luck with Technet site?
