NT Server Setup Problem

By beavis ·
I am trying to set up our development server in such a way that as the administrator, everything is installed and configured properly. I want our developers to be able to log on to the domain via that same server and run those applications as well as configure whatever settings they need to.

If I set up the server and install all of its needed applications as the administrator or a domain administrator, what impact will it have on the developers that log on to the domain using that server if they are only basic domain users? Will they be able to configure things and run programs or will the fact that the administrator set them up keep them from accessing anything?

If the answer is yes, how do I set this up as the administrator without having to give everyone else administrative rights?

I am assuming you will be running these server applications as a service. If so, go to User Manager -> Policies -> User Rights. Under the dropdown menu next to Right, select "Logon locally". Add the users that will be working on the server. Repeat for the right "Logon as a service". Go to Control Panel -> Services. Select the services of the apps that users will be working with. Under "Startup", select "System account", and check "Allow service to interact with the desktop".

As far as files and folders are concerned, you may need to give appropriae user rights for any folders they might need access to.

Excellent posts by intense. But I think he/she overlooked one thing - registry. You may have to assign the particular user (or better - group) write access to the particular registry keys associated with the application. There are some excellant apps on the sysinternals.com (like REGMON) website for NT that will show you what registry items an app is using.

Set the permissions for the directories/apps that they will have access too and what rights they will need. You can give them special rights through the server shares in the server manager
