Q. You receive a 12317 Application event log warning from SRMSVC when the File Server Resource Manager is installed on Windows Server 2003 R2?

When FSRM (File Server Resource Manager) is installed on Windows Server 2003 R2, the Application event log posts a warning similar to:

Event Type:       Warning
Event Source:     SRMSVC
Event Category:   None
Event ID:         12317
Date:             MM/DD/YYYY
Time:             HH:MM.SS
User:             N/A
Computer:         <ComputerName>
Description:      File Server Resource Manager failed to enumerate share paths or DFS paths.  
                  Mappings from local file paths to share and DFS paths may be incomplete or temporarily unavailable.
                  FSRM will retry the operation at a later time. 
                  Error-specific details:
                  Error: (0x80070005) Access is denied.
                  Error: (0x80070005) Access is denied.
                  Error: (0x80070005) Access is denied.
                  Error: (0x80070005) Access is denied.
NOTE: Another instance of Error: (0x80070005) Access is denied is added each time the warning is posted.

1. Start / Run / DSA.msc / OK.

2. Expand <Domain Name>.

3. Expand Builtin.

4. Right-click Users and press Properties.

5. Select the Members tab.
