User rights

By hbee ·
I have certain users that need to have certain permissions/rights to run some applications on Windows NT 4.0. Example: A user when running an application will get the message "you need to be a power user to use this application"
How and where do I assign them this right as an administrator. Any help will be great.

In the Win NT Explorer, chose the file or directory and right click the mouse. Go to properties and chose shared. In that you can give diff. permissions for the users. You can also give the full control permission.

The most common way is through NT user manager (under administrative tools). When you start user manager, you will have local users listed in the top pane and local user groups listed in the bottom pane. To make a user a power user (or a member ofany group listed), double-click on the group (in the lower pane), click add, and add the user from the local machine or from the domain drop down list. There are also individual rights you can assign to certain functions through policies>user rights section at the top of user manager. Consult an NT book on specifics for these uses.

Unfortunatelly no-one has taken into account that you are the administrator with users logging into a domain, and no local accounts on the workstations. If this is the case, you do have to give the user rights (the domain user account that is). But because the user manager you bring up is probably the User Manager for Domains, it won't show the permissions for accounts on Workstations. It is possible to do remotely, without having to go to the remote workstation, but MS does not provide the tools out of the box. Thier's an excellent admin tool that has an interface to modify the user attributes and permissions on not just the domain controllers, and the member servers, but also the workstations. It's worth the $200 price, but comes asa 30 day trial as well. I use it every day! It's called Hyena and it's available from : www.adkins-resource.com
