Windows 2008 Schema Update – INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS

If you’re trying to import an LDIF file with some schema changes on a Windows Server 2008 (or Vista) machine and it bails with an access denied error and an INSUFF_ACCESS_RIGHTS messag, first make sure your account is in the Schema Admins group. Second, make sure User Account Control isn’t adding to the mix. Right click the command prompt shortcut and Run as Administrator and then try the LDIF import.
