Installation Applications on NT 4.0

By aspiring_one ·
Can someone tell me what will happen under the following conditions?

Username = Steve

Computer = abc

Domain = Tech

1. Steve logs on as a local administrator of the local machine abc and installs an application. Later, he is taken out ofthe local administrator’s group and is simply placed in the domain users group. In what way would Steve’s rights to use and administer that application change when he logs on to the local machine again? Would the application have to bereinstalled for him to use it again?

2. Steve logs on and is a member of the domain administrator’s group, Tech. He installs an application and he is then taken out of the domain administrator’s group and has a domain users account.Will his ability to use that application change if he logs on to the domain using that machine?

3. What’s the difference if any between installing an application to the local machine as an administrator and logging on to the domain and installing the applicatio

Domain Administrator is a different account from Local Administrator, each has a unique SID (Security ID)
You would not have to reinstall the applications, worst case would be the apps do not appear on the start menu. You can adjust this by right clicking the Start Button, and explore all users, and moving the short cut.
The Domain Administrator is a member of the Domain Admins, they in turn are members of the Local Group administrator, so in terms of User Rights there is no difference.
If you log on as both users you get two profiles, administrator, and administrator.001, these can cause confusion.

1. The application does not have to be reinstalled for him to use it again. However, if the application does not run when Steve becomes a domain user means that the NTFS permissions set on the folders where the application is kept or the application itself does not allow domain users nor Steve to access the application (minimum requirement READ ACCESS to execute the application).

2. Same as 1.

3. No difference. This is because if you open up User Manager at the workstation, and open up the properties for the local Administrators group, you will find that it contains the Domain Admins global group. However, for the sake of good security, you should never log on as a privileged user on the domain (someone may be sniffing the network).

Hi,

may be there can be problems with the Registry-Permissions, too. Some Registry-Keys can't be accessed from the normal User. But with regedt32 you can change these permissions. I have done that several times succesfully.

(sorry for my worseenglish)
