Windows Server 2022 NIC Teaming: Access is denied

Best Zhu 0 Reputation points

Hi all,

I am going to create new NIC team in Windows Server 2022, but it always prompted Access is denied, I used domain admin and local administrator, result was the same. And also tried to use PowerShell, run as admin, even quit the domain, still failed.

""Network Connection Broker" and "Connected Devices Platform" services were enabled.

Nothing found in event viewer, can you please help to check? thanks a lot.

    If you've already tried using both a domain administrator and a local administrator account and are still facing the "Access is denied" issue while attempting to create a NIC team, it's possible that the problem may be related to a system-wide configuration or security setting.

    You may consider following basic checks:

    • Ensure that no Group Policies are applied that restrict NIC teaming or network-related configurations. Group Policies can override user privileges.
    • Temporarily disable User Account Control (UAC) to see if it's causing the issue. This can be done in the Control Panel under User Accounts and Family Safety > User Accounts > Change User Account Control settings.
