A user who belongs to the Network Configuration Operators group cannot enable or disable a network adapter on a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008
Consider the following scenario:
- You have a computer that is running Windows Vista or Windows Server 2008.
- You use a user account that belongs to the Network Configuration Operators group to log on to this computer.
- You try to enable or to disable a network adapter.
In this scenario, you receive the following error message:
You do not have sufficient privileges for Configuring Connection Properties. Contact your Administrator.
Therefore, you cannot enable or disable the network adapter as expected.
Note: Although you cannot enable or disable the network adapter, you can change the settings for the network adapter.
