Please help me. I am running a server without backup. Thanks a lot for your help in advance. MAST
Do you have the sufficient rights on the sql server? Try to do it locally connecting through RDP or any other way…

This is still a bug because you are using SQL Server Management studio to connect to a server which is not local. As referred by Mohammed if you terminal service to the machine itself and use sa account to connect to it from there then you shouldn’t see this issue. This issue is somehow related to security but haven’t found a solution yet. Have you applied service pack for client tools as well?
