operation requires CMKRNL privilege?

» close window

The Question is:

In testing an ACL, I need to remove some process rights from an id.  I have
 tried "SET RIGHT_LISTS <right> /DISABLE/ID=<pid>".  I get a change Kernel mode
 error.  Is there another command or am I issuing the command incorrectly?
I am a senior developer working with our Sys. Admins.  I have posed the
 question to them as well.  Any help would be appreciated.

The Answer is :

$ help/message NOCMKRNL
 NOCMKRNL,  operation requires CMKRNL privilege
  Facility:     SYSTEM, System Services
  Explanation:  A command or program requested a system function that requires
                CMKRNL privilege; the current process does not have this
  User Action:  If the message is in response to a command entered
                interactively, verify that a command or a qualifier was not
                used for a particular command that requires a specific user
                If the message occurs during the execution of a program,
                determine the system service call that resulted in the error.
                Verify that a service or an argument was not used for a
                particular service that requires a user privilege that you
                do not have.
                In either case, correct the command or program so that you do
                not request the privileged function. If you determine that you
                need the privilege for an application, ask your system manager
                to give you the necessary privilege.
