BVLog Bryan Voss’ mental synchronization point

The disk management services could not complete the operation

Issue: Receive the following error while trying to extend a disk volume via diskpart under Windows 2003: "The disk management services could not complete the operation."

Resolution: User running diskpart does not have full access permissions to root of volume. Either grant user appropriate permissions, or select disk then partition under diskpart, rather than volume. Example:
list disk
select disk n
list partition
select partition n
extend

Thanks to http://theether.net/kb/100061 for the solution. Plagiarized here for my ease of location next time this issue occurs.
