Morning

Just going throught my 2012 SSMS to a 2008r2 server, and I got the following error message, which I've never seen before.

Cannot display policy health state at the server level, because the user doesn’t have permission. Permission to access the msdb database is required for this feature to work correctly.

which is a bit odd as I'm the sysadmin on the box. Once I've clicked through I seem to be able to do all I need to do on the box.

I can find nothing online, and when clicking the link for more help, it comes back with no information in the Knowledge base at this time.

Anyone got any ideas?

I just had the same on SQL Server 2012. In my case the message doesn't seem to be persistent. What is a more persistent is failure of the "Show Policy Health State for all nodes" to take effect. With policies enabled and evaluated, pressing this icon is not working. I have had the policy indicators (icons) light up previously but don't seem able to get them back. Otherwise policy evaluation is working as expected. It would just be nice to get the GUI bit working.
