Describes a specific problem with Message Queuing. Includes step-by-step instructions for fixing the problem.

This problem typically occurs when attempting to create Message Queuing queues in Active Directory Users and Computers or in Computer Management. When you attempt to create a Message Queuing queue you are unable to do so.

You will not be able to create queues if your account has not been granted the Create Queue permission on the Message Queuing computer.

To resolve this problem, grant the appropriate permissions to the user that is attempting to create Message Queuing queues.

  1. Click Start, point to Programs, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Active Directory Users and Computers.

  2. On the View menu, click Users, Groups, and Computers as containers, and then click Advanced Features.

  3. In the console tree, right-click the applicable Message Queuing object.

    Where?

    • Active Directory Users and Computers/YourDomain/YourDomain/YourOrganizationalUnit (such as Computers or Domain Controllers)/YourComputer/msmq

  4. Click Properties and click the Security tab of the msmqProperties dialog box.

  5. Select a group or user account from the list of accounts under Group or user names. If the account is not already listed click Add to add the appropriate group or user account and then select the account.

  6. Grant the Create Queue permission to the selected account.

  1. Click Start, point to Run, type compmgmt.msc, and press ENTER to display the Computer Management MMC console.

  2. In the console tree, right-click Message Queuing.

    Where?

    • Computer Management/Services and Applications/Message Queuing

  3. Click Properties.

  4. Click the Security tab.

  5. Select a group or user account from the list of accounts under Group or user names. If the account is not already listed click Add to add the appropriate group or user account and then select the account.
