cannot do DB2 operation even though logged in with administrative privileges

P: n/a
I am using DB2 7.2 on windows 2000. For some reason, DB2 now asks me
for username/password when I try to open an instance tree in
Control-Center even though I am logged in, although not as an
administrator, but with administrative privileges! Same thing happens
when I try to restore a database using command-line.

I'd appreciate it if somebody could explain this behavior and what to
do rectify this.

Thanks

Exactly what do you mean when you say "not as an administrator, but with
administrative privileges"?

i would think of it as permissions issue. make sure tha the admin
account you are launching the control center is a local acct and has
these perms
1. act as part of the os
2. create a token object
3. replace process level tokens
...as far as i could recollect. refer to the release notes or the
installation log file for more info.
