Error: Cannot open Service Control Manager on computer "servername.domain.com". This operation might require other privileges.

While publishing the Topology. I got the error “Error: Cannot open Service Control Manager on computer “servername.domain.com”. This operation might require other privileges.
















I checked the connectivity, server could ping each other with IP and NetBIOS name. Checked the firewall setting on both SQL and FE server.
Disabled the Firewall  on SQL server and tried Publishing the Topology and it completed successfully.

Cheers,
