Tridion permission to access protected database section MMC, RSA Container

Tridion User do not have permission to access  protected database section in MMC console,  Contact your system administrator. or change General setting values.
Account has no permission to access the protected configuration section 'tridion.security.

Even though i am local administrator on the Windows 2008 R2 server.

Solution: this is actually problem of  KeyContainer on Windows 2008 R2 server. Whoever create it first became the supreme owner, he needs to give the access to other users to make any change

Step1: login using person's credentials. who actually created that container. eg. in Tridion who installed the Tridion.

step2: aspnet_regiis -pa "TridionRsaKeyContainer" "<domain>\<account>" -full

in case of tridion "TridionRsaKeyContainer" is the container name, but it will work for any container issue. just replace the container name.

Other solution:

1) Login using persons credentilas who actully installed application that created that RSA Container.

2) go to C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Microsoft\Crypto\RSA\MachineKeys\ 
find the Particular machine key in above folder.
How to search

1) Date on which particular application was installed/ container were created
2) You will see the name of the person in permission list who created it.

give administrator permission to that system file.

it will surely work.
