SYMPTOMS

On a computer that is running Subsystem for UNIX-based Applications (SUA) in Windows Vista, you cannot perform certain privileged operations such as creating sockets, opening disk devices, opening driver device objects, and opening section objects. This is the case even if you are a member of the domain administrators group or a member of the local administrators group.

Only the built-in domain administrator or the built-in local administrator can perform these privileged operations.
