SYMPTOMS

When you use a user account that belongs to the "Network Configuration Operators" security group on a Windows Vista-based computer or a Windows Server 2008-based computer, some NetSH commands are unsuccessful. Additionally, you receive the following message:
The requested operation requires elevation.
This problem occurs even if you start the NetSH utility by using the "Run as administrator" option so that you can run the NetSH utility with "Network Configuration Operators" permissions.

For example, the following command is unsuccessful:
netsh interface ipv4 add winsserver "Interface Name" IPv4_Address
Note In Windows XP or in Windows Server 2003, if the user account belongs to the "Network Configuration Operators" security group, the user can perform all NetSH commands.
