Exchange server 2007 policy restriction to access

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Hello there,

 My name is Carl from the University of Nairobi, currently doing a personal project on Microsoft server for exchange 2007.

I am implementing a virtual server from a VM software in the same machine as my windows opera rating system. 

When I am attempting to run an MMC (Microsoft management console) snap in, I receive the following error;


The snap-in below, referenced in this document, has been restricted by policy.

Contact your administrator for details.

Exchange Server 2007.

I have tried again and again to do it, but the same error comes up. Now I need help to eliminate this problem. 


Thank you.

With this error: MMC. “The snap-in below, referenced in this document has been restricted by policy .Contact your Administrator for details. Exchange Server 2007, I can’t really give you the exact solution but we could try several things to see if it works.

First try checking if the some important services are running. Services like:

Ø  COM+ System Application

Ø  COM+ Event System

Ø  DCOM Server Process Launcher

Ø  Windows Event Log

Ø  Windows Event Collector

Ø  System Event Notification Service

Ø  RPC Endpoint Mapper

Ø  Remote Procedure Call (RPC)

Ø  Credential Manager

Make sure that everything is started.

Also make sure that you have Administrator or full access to your system32 and its sub folder. Check under C:windowssystem32.

This error may also happen if a program associated with MMC snap-in was removed and leaves remnants in your system’s registry or if you’re using MMC 3.0.


Go to Start>Run>type MMC. Then on the window opened, click File>Add/Remove Snap-in>Add>under Available standalone snap-ins list, choose WMI Control and Ok. See if that would work.
