Administrator without permissions?

By john_doe ·
I'm running Windows NT 4.0. I logon as Administrator to the domain and when I try to install software, it tells me that I don't have permissions to add software, however if I logon as Administrator locally, it allows me to install software. I checked all the permissions for each Admin account and they match. Does anyone know why and Administrator would not have permissions on a machine? I've also checked the groups that are assigned to both administrator accounts and they both have identical groups. All of them.

Choose User Rights command from the Policy menu of User Manager for domains,you may have to be granted user rights in user manager to administer software.

That is because the two Administrator accounts are actually different. You will need to grant explicit rights to the domain Administrator in the local user listing in order to allow that account to truly administer the machine.

Good luck!

Log into the LOCAL machine as the administrator and open up "User Manager". Double click the Administrator goup on the bottom. Look at the accounts that are granted Admin priviledges. The one for the Network Admin should read similar to this "XXXXXX/Administrator". (XXXXXX=Domain Name) Sounds like somebody either deleted this account from the Local Admin Group or the system lost the information for it.
