Question

Locked

I know it is a dumb question but I need an expert to ease my mind

By p.ferme ·
I have a SBS 2003. I has user accounts on it with just User rights. If I setup a WinXP workstation, and add join the domain. Then add a user on the workstation using the domain I set up on the server AND giving the user Administrator rights. The user rights on the server will over ride those of the workstation so they cannot perform Administrative tasks on the server, Right?????

User Rights

by Nimmo In reply to I know it is a dumb quest ...

Do you want a user to have local administrative rights but not domain administrative rights?

If you do want the user to be a local administrator just do a right click on the computer in question (in active directory under the computers OU) and select manage. (or just login locally, right click my computer > manage)

A management snapin will open, in there you can expand local users and groups tab, select the group tab and double click the administrative group, click add > advanced > find now and then browse the directory to the user in question.

This will allow the user to perform local administrative tasks only, you may want to select power users or something that is a more restrictive.

No local and domain administration is different.
