Unable to “Save Object” in WBEMTest with “Number: 0x80041003”, “Facility: WMI” and “Description: Access Denied”


While enabling DSCP (Differentiated Services Code Point) marking for an OCS 2007 R2 environment via the following TechNet article:, I ran into an error when trying to save the changes I made to the ServerQoSEnabled object in the MSFT_SIPPoolConfigSetting instance.  What would happen is that as soon as I hit the Save Object button:


I would immediately receive the following error:

Number: 0x80041003

Facility: WMI

Description: Access Denied


Clicking on the More Information button doesn’t present you with more information and proceeding to close the WBEMTest window will not save the changes you’ve made.


I did a bit of research around this problem and a blog post mentioned that you can turn off UAC to fix it.  While I don’t doubt that it would, I chose to simply open up a command prompt running it as an administrator:


Then running WBEMTest from there:


Once I opened WBEMTest from an command prompt with elevated permissions, I was able to save the changes.
