Can't view Locks / Process ID

P: n/a
Hi,

We have SQL 7 running on Windows 2000 Server. For some reason we are
unable to view Locks / Process ID from workstations running Windows XP
SP2 with Enterprise Manager. Nothing shows up in the window on the
right. All it's says at the top of the window is "There are no items to
show in this view" If we use Enterprise Manager on the server, we can
view the Locks / Process ID. We can view both, Process Info and Locks /
Object from the workstations and server, just not the Locks / Process
ID. We used to, but I don't know what changed. I'm thinking it might
have to do with upgrading to XP SP2, or a Windows update, but I'm not
sure.

Has anyone out there experienced this? Or does anyone know the
solution?

Thanks,
Mark

I find it a bit difficult to believe that Windows XP SP2 would matter,
at least when it comes to the communication with SQL Server. But maybe
some interaction with the MMC has broken.

If you use any Profiler, can you detect wether Locks / ProcessID generate
any calls to SQL Server?
